Nexus One 3rd Party Exchange Server Calendar Sync Options: RoadSync or TouchDown?

I noted (complained) last week that the HTC Nexus One cannot sync Exchange Server calendar events they way that the Motorola Droid can…

HTC Confirms Nexus One Cannot Sync Exchange Server Calendar Events

Two knowledgeable mobile gadget friends suggested two alternatives (3rd party apps):

– One friend suggested trying Dataviz RoadSync for Android.

– Another friend suggested taking a look at NitroDesk TouchDown.

Both Android apps are priced at $19.99 although RoadSync has a limited time introductory price of $9.99. DataViz says Android 2.0 support is “coming soon”. And, since the Nexus One runs Android 2.1, this option will remain on the sideline until full support is available. NitroDesk, on the other hand, reports that TouchDown provides a release specific for Android 2.0 and 2.1 (Droid and Nexus One).

I’m not in a rush to get Exchange Server calendar sync for my Nexus One since I have a Droid to use. But, it looks like TouchDown is the current solution of choice until DataViz releases a version of RoadSync that fully supports Android 2.1.
