Say hello to Kandy. Kandy is an application which allows to you 
communicate with your mobile phone. It aims at providing 
synchronisation for phone book, appointments and other data stored on 
the mobile.

Currently Kandy is a baby application. It is still learning how to 
speak to the phone and often stumbles. What Kandy in the current state 
provides is a basic kind of terminal program with some extra features 
to remember and replay AT commands, a simple GUI to some data of the 
phone like the phonebook, and the ability to import the phonebook from 
the mobile to the standard KDE addressbook database. It requires a 
mobile phone with integrated modem like e.g. the Siemens S35.

You will find Kandy in CVS. When you try it, please remember that it 
still is in a very early state of development. Make a backup of your 
data, before you use it.

In order to grow up, Kandy needs some time and help. If you are 
interested in this kind of application and would like to contribute to 
development, testing, documentation etc or have any comments please 
don't hesitate to contact me.
