Synchronising with Evolution (under Ubuntu)

by Diluvium / February 19, 2009 4:58 PM PST

Which manufacturer sells mobile phones that support synchronising one's contacts and calendar with Evolution, running under Linux (Ubuntu)? This is my Number One requirement.

Whilst it can be done with some existing models on the market, it is notoriously difficult to do reliably. If no native software is available, at least SYNCML should be supported, preferably over usb, but else over bluetooth.

Also important: support for RTL-languages (Arabic) and managing SMS through PC.
Not important: e-mail and high-end music capabilities.
Nice to have: camera, gps, dual sim / dual standby

Any pointers anyone, please, please?
