Google has just announced that their new service simply titled Sync, is available today for the iPhone and other mobile devices.

The service gives users the liberty of not having to physically sync a mobile device with a computer. Once it has been setup through Microsoft Exchange, Google Sync will be able to push Gmail contacts and Google Calendar events back and forth from your iPhone and computer. Just make sure you have the push option enabled on your iPhone.

Google Sync uses the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol which upon setting up a new account will replace all existing contacts and calendar events from your iPhone. Now that you have been warned, back up all important data before setting up Google Sync.

Google Sync is in its beta stage and is available for the BlackBerry, Nokia S60, Nokia Standard, Sony Ericsson, Windows Mobile and last but not least the iPhone.
