    I found a new app MyPhoneExplorer (which was a wonderful phone manager for SE) in the market now available free for Android.

    It backs up sms/contacts and syncs data, allows sms to be sent from the system and most of all it connects via wifi too in addition to USB cable.

    Maybe AP can feature an article/review of this app. Will be useful for a lot of people.
