I've heard from reliable sources that BB10.2 will address this issue.  No word on a release date though.

I find that the current sync via BlackBerry Link isn't really usable as there isn't a system to choose which version (device or Outlook) to use on a case by case conflict. You don't have to wait though for BlackBerry to update Link.

Just export your contacts and calendar and import them into Outlook.Com. (Create a hotmail account if you don't have one.). Then you add this account to Outlook and to your Q10 and your contacts and calendar will sync themselves without requiring BlackBerry Link to do anything. You would still use Link to backup, etc just not to sync your key data.

There's an excellent article at the top of the BB10 section here with step by step instructions.
