So I finally dumped my old flip phone and got a shiny new Galaxy Nexus. 
I got on the UVM wireless OK and have UVM email working.

Next up, is there any way to sync with Oracle Calendar and/or get Google 
Calendar to talk to Oracle?

This page implies it is possible to sync Oracle to an Android phone:.

But looking around under Android, one comes to the following rather 
uninformative page.
