Sony Ericsson has decided to do away with its existing synchronization services from December 29th, 2011. The handset maker informs that the current sync services were designed for its old phones and are almost obsolete for the current crop of devices being churned out by the company.

On their blog they say "We are phasing out Sony Ericsson Sync service since it was meant for old generation phones and our aim is to create a more enhanced and integrated smartphone experience for you. As an alternative to Sony Ericsson Sync service, we recommend you to use the Google Sync service for a more integrated experience in line with the favorite range of Google Mobile Services like Google Voice Search, Google Maps and YouTube."

Sony suggests third party sync services like Google Sync, Plaxo and UNYK as a replacement for their own sync services.
