In the absence of a PC Suite, it was not possible to directly connect your phone to the PC and transfer files let alone manage contacts and apps. Enter Android, and the situation changed. The openness of the platform means that you can do away with any accompanying windows PC software. Mobogenie wishes to change that though.
