Did Google Sync for iPhone/Windows Mobile Make Outlook & MyPhone Obsolete?

I posted two items over on my MobileAppsToday blog…

Google Sync (Beta) for iPhone & Windows Mobile: Think Before You Sync!

Microsoft MyPhone Service Free, But Not Comparable to Apple MobileMe

…that got me wondering if:

1. The Google Sync for iPhone & Windows Mobile made Outlook obsolete
2. If it made Microsoft’s MyPhone service obsolete before it even went live?

Microsoft stopped shipping Outlook with some lower-priced Microsoft Office bundles a while back. And, Windows Mobile smartphone hardware vendors stopped including Outlook with those phones around the same time. So, it is cheaper and easier to sync with Google Calendar and Contacts that with Outlook. And, since MyPhone is not out yet, people will probably try Google Sync.
