Palm + Windows = Treo 700w

Now for something I thought I’d never see – the Treo 700w. A Palm device powered by Windows Mobile. Somehow the look of the device is all wrong – the shape that so defined the Palm revolution in PDA-telephony running Windows – ugh!
But that’s my impression. It may rock the world. Me, I’m waiting for whoever who comes up with Windows Mobile 2005 in a PDA-handphone combo with all the stuff you’d come to expect from mobile devices these days.

I’m surprised at the speed this guy takes to upgrade my copy of MT to 3.2. I was looking forward to some new stuff with the new version, but the upgrade process took longer than I had expected simply because of my phone’s tendency to drop my EDGE connection.
Finally got it up, and I must say SixApart did a good job for the upgrading process – smooth. However if it wasn’t for the time I’d peek more closely at the blog settings – looked to me like there are some bugs…

Google Blog Search

Mobile Internet

I’ve always said (and expected) that having Internet with you constantly on all the time is a good thing. This is what’s happening with me now.
I’ve finally sunk in the money to get a Nokia 6320i after years of holding out on a new handphone because I wanted to wait for a PocketPC/handphone hybrid running Windows Mobile 2005 Phone Edition. That hasn’t come fast enough for me, and how that I’ve shifted to techno-nowhereville, I found that a month of no internet at home is a little stifling than I had imagined.
So enter the Nokia, that among other stuff has the one thing I’m eyeing for – it’s Bluetooth and EDGE capabilities.
I can connect to the net via my phone to my laptop, and the reception in Putra Heights isn’t half bad at all. So no internet at home – solved.
But I was talking about mobile internet. As I lug around with me my trusty iPAQ 4150, I can connect to the internet at any time I want, wherever I am. The process now is clunky – too many steps in my opinion to get online, but then I’m a major nag. Nothing is simple enough for me, even though I can be considered . But the service is fabulous. So I’m finding getting my email and browsing the internet and IMming wherever I am a lot of fun.
