I’ve finally managed to dump the abominable Treo650. After years of Palm use I’ve called it a day: crap OS, daily restarts, fat form factor, pathetic microphone and a camera that’s like a myopic squint. In my time with Orange I’ve had three of them (Threo?) due to problems, breakdowns and general crapness.
Welcome, then, the new Sony Ericsson K800i. Small, nicely built, good camera and it’s just a phone! I will miss the QWERTY keyboard of the Treo but that’s it.
Anyway, first impression led to the realisation that here’s yet another thing that doesn’t sync with the Mac via iSync (should be renamed “MightSync”). A quick google however led me to the rather excellent mobile.feisar.com and his iSync plugins.
After a vast £1.49 (honest) later I had a plugin that just worked exactly as stated. Brilliant!
It reminded me of the wonders of micro-charging. For £1.49 it’s not worth not trying it, if that makes sense. The cost of time looking for options or fiddling in vain is far greater.
So – with a quick “thank you” and a plug for the site I’m off to enjoy good sound quality, good build, decent camera and reliable operation…. I hope!
Now all I need to do is the Sucker’s Dance of buying more new format memory cards, chargers, adaptors etc.
