From Palm Vx to Nokia N95. First Round
I have been evaluating what I am actually using on the Palm Vx and thus I would like to continue working on the N95. Beside applications like TinySheet or Adobe Reader, that I eventually used but were "optional" applications, the main functions and features I need and like are:
- Confidential Records
- Repeating Events
From my first exploration of the possibilities, I am able to export from the Palm Desktop software the contacts in vCard format version 2.1 (.vcf files). Then, I import them directly in the Contacts manager of the PC Suite and just synchronize with the handset. It imports successfully all the fields that I have defined in my contacts but unfortunately it is not able to manage the categories and I although I have found a good way to search the contacts, it does not look for all the fields (for instance the email).
The only workaround I have found for the categories issue is to use groups of contacts to distinguish them, but they are not backed up so this information is lost afterwards when synchronizing.
I must recognize that the search is fast enough and that the contacts manager of the PC Suite is nice, but the Palm Desktop way of managing contacts is quite better!!!
Palm 1 - Nokia 0. I will continue investigating...
