I wanted a caledar only on my Kindle but without side loading outlook calendar (if that can even be done) the only way I could do it was to open a Gmail account on my Kindle and then download Google calendar from the web to my DESKTOP PC.
Kindle came with a calendar but when I put Gmail on the kindle I got that option. I went on a kindle forum (or maybe Google) like this and found instructions on how to set it up to sync from outlook to Google calendar. I did it and it worked and is still working--outlook to Google only.
I'll look for the insturctions and hopefully I kept them and post here if I find them. That said, I think you just download Google calendar and once it's on your PC, set up the sync from Outlook to Google (or whatever configuration you want) or Gmail to Google-- and then when you load it on your other devices it should work. It was confusing at first to me as I have never used Google in any form other than search and maps--but they play well with MS Outlook so I hope this helps a little. Sorry I'm not more help but someone on here will jump on and be of help, I'm sure. Good luck and keep us posted.

The worst part about this is I attempted to reconfigure Google sync on my BB9000 and it wiped the calendar and contacts on the phone to try and re-sync :/
Anyone know of a good way to export my Android / Google contacts to a format I can import them on to my phone in at least?
(Yes, I run 2 phones)

I have a solution!
System details: Blackberry Bold 9930 on Verizon, Blackberry Desktop Manager 7, Windows 7 with Outlook 2010, and Google
My goal was to export all my blackberry contacts (400+) to Google. I spent about 4 hours researching but have arrived at a complicated but functional workaround:
step 1: sync blackberry using the desktop manager software. you must configure it to sync with windows contacts, since there is no support for outlook 2010.
step 2: once you have synced with windows contacts, open windows live, then click on the contacts folder. pressing alt while in the contacts folder will bring up the menu, which allows you to export all of the contacts at a .csv file.
step 3: import to google. this is the easy part. go to gmail, then contacts, then import the .csv file.
and you should have it. I managed to at least make a backup of my extensive contact list to Google. Sorry I couldn't find anything else, but I hope this helps. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions
