Today i'm going to tell you that how to sync your Contacts, Tasks and Calendar entries with your Google account. All you know that Nokia N900 have a built-in client of Mail for Exchange which can enable your N900 and your Google account to establish a two way sync i.e Syncing tasks, calendar and contacts with and from your Google account.
It is not really that hard when first i was configuring my N900 for sync. it will sync without any problem if you do all steps correct. Here are the steps:
1. First go to Menu>Settings and click on Mail for Exchange.
2. When you click on Mail for Exchange a dialogue will pop click Next to Start process
3. After clicking Next; Mail for Exchange will ask for Credentials. Fill them as follow:
E-mail Address: your email address with you want to be synced (i.e firstname.lastname@example.org)
Username: when you fill your E-mail id this section will be filled automatically.
Password: Your Google ID password.
