With the new version of iTunes 7.7 that came out today, you now have the option to sync your contacts from "Google Contacts".

Previously, it was just Yahoo Address Book and Outlook.

You just enter your Google Account info and hit sync! It's nice & quick, and it works well, but it doesn't sync your Gmail Photos :(

To get your contact photos into your iPhone or iPod touch you still have to add all your contacts and photos to Outlook 2007 and then sync with Outlook.

(Of course there are other ways on a Mac...)

I actually did it from Gmail to Outlook, then from Outlook to iPhone.

Uh, this feature is not new. It has been available for a month or two. It's annoying that there's no way to set the direction (e.g. prevent gMail contact info from overwriting Address Book entries).

Any idea to do so with an HTC Touch?
