I'm using Ubuntu hardy and Evolution in that environment. I also have

In Windows, calendar entries, tasks, appointments, contacts, etc, are
automatically synchronized. 
I would very much like to have the same feature with Evolution in
Ubuntu, but I don't know how
to go about achieving this. Local sync via USB is most important, but
I'd also like to sync via web. 

Does the N95 have a SyncML client? I suspect that it does. In that case
you can synchronize it with a SyncML server on the web, like for example, and from there with SyncEvolution [1] with
Evolution. That should give you two-way synchronization of calendars,
tasks, contacts, and notes.

There are other solutions, most notably OpenSync. The main conceptual
difference is that OpenSync is limited to local sync, while SyncML
requires a server. ScheduleWorld has recently introduced synchronization
via Bluetooth [2] (haven't tried it myself).

Disclaimer: I'm the author of SyncEvolution. I'm not affiliated with
ScheduleWorld, but they provide an excellent service and are the only
ones which fully support Evolution calendars, so I can recommend them.
