Google synchronize allows a device to sync its contacts as well as its calender. On a mobile device the calendar is the second, somewhere it comes first, important thing after the contacts. So it should also be synced, if you don't want to miss any of your appointments, meeting and birthday events. As mentioned earlier, Google is providing the facilities to sync calendar with your mobile device.
