Bluepen61 is correct. Google Calendar Sync has been discontinued. Existing users can continue to use it however (without support). It is no longer available for download for new users.. http://googleblog.blogspot.ca/2012/12/winter-clean

The Missing Sync for Andriod which I mentioned earlier still works great. I use it to sync my Outlook Calendar, Contacts, Note, etc with my phone as well as my Nook. You have to buy the desktop part - whichi is now only $30, but the corresponding apps for your mobile devices are free. I've been using it since it first came out and it's been very reliable.

I was able to sync with MissingSync, however, not properly. For the recurring events that have long ended, probably due to ending a previously forever event, MissingSync shows events still going on well into the future. It appears MissingSync does not understand recurring events well.
I then tried out CompanionLink. It worked well, but require separate Calender app as it does not sync to native database. And it's also expensive at $50 ($40 with special coupon).
The other day, while searching for WM8 Outlook sync solution for my Nokia 1020, I found a hidden gem in Akruto (www.akruto.com). At $25, it syncs to any WM8 or Android devices in native format. If you have a big Outlook database like me, it will take a while for initial sync (took me 10hrs). But it syncs beautifully - proper recurring event handling, full database sync, and to native mobile database. Subsequent sync takes minutes. And did I say one app for both OS that lacks built-in cloudless Outlook sync?

For some reason, Nook sync is extremely slow compare to other devices. My Nokia Lumia 1020 took 10hr to sync 20k records, but Nook took 9 days! It processes at speed of 100 records per hour, even though I installed app to keep Nook's WiFi constantly on. However, the ability to use build-in Calendar application, and other apps that make use of build-in Calendar database, outweights the slowness in initial sync. Subsequent sync is bearable, as I don't change more than 10-20 records per day, which translates to a 5-10min sync. As the sync is "push", I hardly notice it.
