[jp] Maemo vs. Android

But the point of jpilot is to backup/sync the smart phone's own 
calendar, contacts database, etc.  If you run jpilot on the phone 
itself, wouldn't it then just be another application but not interact 
with the phone's own calendar, contacts database and dialing function?

What would be the point?

Does the Maemo have its own backup/syncing program?  If so, might there 
be a way to port the jpilot database over to the Maemo tool and thus 
populate the Maemo with contacts and calendar?
