Easily Remove Duplicate Entries from Your Contacts with DupeDeDupe

Paul O’Brien of MoDoCo has created a free utility that quickly removes duplicate entries from the list of contacts in a Windows Mobile device. 

DupeDeDupe has a very basic user interface. It looks for duplicates, and then gives the user the option to remove them. Contacts are compared based on the Email field and Home, Work, and Mobile phone fields. If all those match, it’s deemed a duplicate.

This free application can be downloaded now from the MoDaCo website.
