So you want to buy a Google Android phone, but you’ve spent the last 10 years loading all of your personal data info onto a Windows Mobile or Symbian device. SPB Software has a simple solution, called SPB Migration Tool. It’s a $10 app which you can use to copy your data from Windows Mobile or Symbian and export it to an Android device.

There are plenty of ways to export your contacts — especially if you already sync with Microsoft Outlook. But SPB Migration can also handle call history, text messages, and browser bookmarks.

You can either save your data to an SD card for transfer, or use a secure web interface. To find detailed instructions and find out if your phone is supported, you can check out the company’s Migrate to Android web site.
