Yes this is small currently, but should grow. And I plan on trying to
crowd source this information once the Desktop Summit is over. Of
course as you state below this doesn't mean we know which template
this should be assigned to.
I was trying to grow the list of know and tested devices with the
and the resulting Wiki query for "phone":
The result has been somewhat mixed. Directly after the initial
SyncEvolution 1.0 release, some entries were added, but that stopped
It definitely would be good to advertise that SyncEvolution really works
with phones and how to report success/failure.

Right. This is available without support for the Device Id profile, by
using a portion of the mac address.
Do we have and/or need code for that kind of lookup? Please correct me
if I'm mistaken, but isn't Device ID profile support wide-spread enough
that we can rely on it exclusively find the vendor name?

Ok. Some of the names in the vendor list obtained from the Bluetooth
SIG would not match our fingerprints. For example, Sony Ericsson is
"Ericsson Technology Licensing." SE also has another entry that reads
"Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications." We either need to rename them
to match in the list or in the config templates. I say we change it in
