Don't know if this has been asked before (but I'm sure it has), is there any sort of a "Desktop Manager" for Android (specifically the Droid), just like the one used for BB?

Thanks.

Yep :D Motorola Media Link

Motorola Media Link - Motorola USA

Edit: It won't sync your contacts ect. It's just for Media however you can back up contacts, calender, etc. using Google Sync from your handheld.
Hope this helps.

Not that I know of. There are various file managers available that run on the Droid but there's nothing that runs on a PC or Mac that performs the functions of the Desktop Manager on BB or iTunes on the iPhone (synch contacts, music, apps, etc).

Edit: looks like YoungChrisG beat me to it! I'll have to give Media Link a look.

I use this program from the market called astro file manager. It backs up your phone on the sd card. You can schedule a backup daily, weekly, or monthly I believe. It backsup apps, contacts, media, etc. right from your phone. Thats another alternative.

That sounds even better!!

Another question.. has anyone here tried this:
Sprite Mobile - Android Backup - SMS, Bookmarks, System Settings, Application Settings, Call Logs, MMS, Contacts, Photos, Video, Music and much more...

Looks great. The only thing that I can't find is any support for 2.0 . Or will any version do for Android?
Sorry for the n00b questions... still rather new to what Android has to offer.:)

Technically it should be updated to 2.0 but some apps do work for the most part even if they haven't been updated.
