Post Palm Centro and M8: marriage made in heaven
This is totally cool! Got tired of carrying around my PDA and a cell phone, wanted a smartphone that would synch with Kontact.

Snooped around the web, finally bought a Palm Centro from Verizon (US$90 with a new 2-yr plan), activated it, connected it to the desktop, saw in dmesg that it was recognized, followed Wiki Palm directions, fired up KPilot, pressed the synch button on the Centro and--SHAZAM!--everything loaded up fine. Tested two-way synch: no problem. Followed bluetooth directions in the User's Manual Section 5.8 (who writes such useful stuff?!) to pair the devices, and I am in heaven.

:biggrin:

Outtasight!!

I'm glad you like the Centro; my daughter wanted one for Christmas, but then changed her mind at the last minute. I'm waiting for the Pre (at least I think I am. :)

The Pre looks like it should be terrific, but I haven't seen a price yet.

I haven't either; that's why I only think I might want it. LOL!
