Plaxo coming to webOS 2.0 via a Synergy Service?

One of the little-noticed (and even less-developed-for) features in webOS 2.0 are Synergy Services, which allow any developer to plug into webOS' messaging, contacts, and calendar. We're assuming Skype on Verizon will take advantage of it on the Pre 2 (if when it's released), but beyond that it's been thin pickings.

Apparently that won't be the case for much longer. We spotted an app in Palm's Beta feed for Plaxo, which should allow your contacts from that service to live alongside your Exchange, Facebook, and LinkedIn contacts in perfect harmony. We're not Plaxo users ourselves, but we've received enough invites from others that we assume plenty of people are waiting for this service.

The app is described as a "Palm Internal Test," so it may never see the light of day. We hope it does, though, if only because this is a webOS 2.0 feature we'd like to see more developers take advantage of.
