yes, in for a pound. i’m jumping off the virtual cliff next week and heaven help me. i am switching from being a die-hard palm user (palm pilot, tx, treo and a bunch in between from the very 1st to the very last) and next friday will become an early adapter on the new verizon droid. i’ve been waiting a long time. and i was waiting for verizon to get the new palm pre – even tho i recognized that this new palm software was completely different in every way than what i had used for years. once i wrapped my head around that, i started thinking about really switching systems altogether. but i would not go to at&t or sprint – both have horrible coverage and/or service and if you’re complaining about these things here in new york city, then you’re really in trouble once you leave the land of cell phone nirvana.
i am very very very picky about my technology. i spend a lot of time thinking about just what i need and how to find the programs to make that happen. i have an extensive and well-organized selection of memos from my palm desktop that i will need to rethink – how to get them on my new phone and with what program? i have to get used to outlook – always been on a palm desktop. luckily the program pocketcopy did exactly what it was supposed to do (as i held my breath) and transferred years and years and years of contacts and calendar and notes to my new outlook. (i refuse to use my company’s exchange/calendar. there is simply no reason to have any corporation know that much about you.) and this phone has a real keyboard. try as i might, i cannot type on a virtual keyboard.
so i’m jumping into the android pool. except i’m expecting it to be an ocean. my head is swimming – ha ha …i guess pun intended!
