Simon Bell actually plans to implement syncing in NCX
<> using Mac OS X's Sync
Services, but currently provides other functionality not offered
elsewhere on Mac OS X like backup & restore as well as package

nSync <> is another option that
solely does synchronization, but it doesn't exactly do it well.

As far as the BlueTooth goes, grab a Pico card from
<> (as John suggested) and install
Eckhart Köppen's Blunt <> drivers.
I also suggest installing his IC/VC
<> utility for importing/exporting
notes, names, and dates via BlueTooth.

I use the the above mentioned setup on my MessagePad 2100 every day
and it work flawlessly for me. I export all new calendar events from
Dates and import them into Google Calendar*, names into Mac OS X's
Address Book, and send notes to and fro as well.

* - There seems to be a bug with importing iCal files into Google
Calendar when using Google Calendar, but otherwise it's flawless.
