This additional functionality enhances the e-mail solution integrated into Skweezer, making it easier than ever to send messages and keep in contact with friends and co-workers. The new address book found in Skweezer allows users to import contacts from a wide variety of applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, and Plaxo. Contacts imported into Skweezer are dynamically organized to fit the device that's being used, in order to make finding and retrieving the information as easy as possible. Contacts are also accessible from Skweezer Mail, providing a fast and convenient way to address outgoing messages."</i><br /><br />Maybe I'm not understanding this, but why would I want to use Skweezer for my email? My Smartphone already supports multiple email accounts, and all my contacts are always with me. Other than their compression, I don't see any benefits. In fact, I see more issues than anything else. What if you update an email address, does it sync automatically with Skweezer? I don't expect it would. I think this is aimed more at the dumbphones of the world. :wink:

I used skweezer awhile ago, and frankly, the speed benefit wasn't really worth it. The idea that they're adding Plaxo Sync'ing is kinda cool, but as you said, what the heck am I gonna do with their email? Most of us sync our PPC / Smartphone everyday... Why do I need yet another address book in another place? Isn't the whole point of convergence to have one address book, inbox, etc.?
