It's an increasingly rare day when a press release finds its way to my inbox that's actually relevant to me or anyone that uses an iPhone. But, goosync.com has done it. They have a product that syncs your iPhone with Google's online calendar. It's a Windows-only app and it requires Outlook with a plugin, but if you were looking for a way to sync the Google to your iPhone, there's a way to do it.
"A synchronisation application is not yet available for the Apple iPhone. However, it is still possible to synchronise the device with GooSync by using the Funambol Outlook Plugin. [....] A GooSync client for the Apple iPhone is planned for release in Q1 2008."I don't know why you would, but if you need the press release, it's after the break.
Google and iPhone Now in Sync
Toffa International adds iPhone support to its on-line GooSync service.
Wolverhampton, UK November 26, 2007 – A better, more efficient way of keeping Google calendars and contacts synced with your iPhone is now possible thanks to GooSync.

Adding iPhone support strengthens our ongoing commitment to supporting the latest mobile technologies. Keeping Calendars and Contacts Synced and Safe is a priority for iPhone users.”
Toffa launched GooSync in January 2007, since then over 100,000 users have been synchronizing their appointments and events between their mobile device and their free on-line Google Calendar. Toffa’s latest addition to GooSync means that iPhone users will now be able to sync their Google data.
