iCal + Publish + P800 + Opera = Yum

Now THAT's what I'm talking about. Opera on the P800 renders published iCals in a single window with dates to click on and beautifully simple layout. No mega graphics, nice and quick to load, up to the minute information.



I put something in my iCal ... it's on a mobile-friendly format straight away. In other words, synced.



Yum.

    How about some screenshots, Harald, for those of us who are still on the fence about iCal and the P800.



    Also, can you actually import the published iCal calendar? Or do you have to be on the air with your P800 to access the calendar?

    [I've been trying to find the P800 thread that Harald started a while ago, but it seems to have gone...]



    Harald, can I ask you a question about the P800 -- what do you think of it as a PDA?



    I have an old Palm IIIc, which is giving up the ghost (and looks like a brick compared to my wife's Sony Clie!). I want to have my PDA bluetooth-ed up to connect to my phone, so have been looking at getting a Palm Tungsten, but thought 'but a P800 would have everything in'.



    So it all depends how it stands up as a PDA really...

    I've been wanting to replace my Palm IIIxe and enter the color, Bluetooth, GPRS age. But I'm still uncertain as to what to do. Right this moment, I'm trying to find a Palm-based smartphone, so that I could keep using Palm apps. But none of the Palm-phones seem to have Bluetooth.



    Samsung just annoucned the <a href="http://www.palminfocenter.com/view_story.asp?ID=5108"; target="_blank">SPH-i500</a>, which looks sweet except for the lack of BT.

    The Handspring Treo 300 (CDMA) or 270 (GSM) still look good, but also lack BT.



    Dunno...

    Who wants the screenies?



    Nope, you can't import it.



    As a PDA, it's better then my Palm used to be, no question. No question at all at all.

    sorry harald, yet another question!



    just had a play with the P800 *again* today while out at lunch. how do you find the stylus? i'm quite used to the palm stylus, but this one was very slim -- any problems with lots of use?



    i'm so close to buying one and my wife is going to go mad...

    The stylus is fine. Not as nice as a solid Palm one, but for what you use it for it's great. I've never complained about it.

    Well it's suppose to be in the US by the end of march if any of you guys hear of any deals let me know... I wish it was a bit smaller and was made by Apple but I really need to replace both my palm and my phone and this looks like the best bet

    thats what i'm doing -- my IIIc is giving up the ghost.



    so, for the same price as a palm tungsten i can get one of these. 299.99 with a new contract or 329.99 upgrade here in the UK.

    Thanks for getting us back on topic, Harald. It's a real shame that you can't import the published calendar. I really can't believe that Apple and SE haven't gotten their sync act together yet. I can't help but suspect that there are political/marketing motives holding up P800-Mac compatibility. For cryin' out loud, Apple can post scripts for SE clicker, but they can't make iSync work with the P800?

    I guess it depends on what you define as a PDA. I have no doubt that the P800 at least equals a Palm with the two traditional PDA functions - calendaring and contact-keeping. But what about running 3rd-party software? It's just a shame that the P800 (and many other smartphones) can't run the thousands of Palm apps available and that developers have to write all their software anew, in languages like Java (J2E) and Mophun.

    No worries at all, othello. I was just trying to help. It's a narrow topic and I'm about to go further off-topic.



    It looks like the smartphone competition is heating up. The US FCC just released details of Motorola's upcoming A920 Smartphone. According to an <a href="http://www.infosyncworld.com/news/n/3244.html"; target="_blank">InfoSync.no article</a>, the A920 "runs on Symbian OS with the UIQ platform atop: the exact same combination as used in Sony Ericsson's P800."

    Sorry, but after looking at that old P800 thread, I have come to the conclusion that that thing is just too freakin' big. And I was kinda planning on getting one.



    Does anyone know the size of the T610 in relation to the P800? Because that was kinda my next choice...

    Aha!



    They've just made a booster available from AppForge ... which means all those VB programmes written for handhelds work out the box. So ... your cookery programme, timers, golf card, expenses ... bloody everything works out the box.



    Have a <a href="http://scripts.appforge.com/app_exchange/samples.asp?action=showCat&cat=CAT00027&plt=plt000 05" target="_blank">peek.</a>

    Lame. The P800 has a calendar app for a reason.
