Level 3, BEGIN

So it's been a long time since I've written anything, and that's because since I last wrote here I got a full time job, graduated from RIT, and moved to the Boston area. But now I have some time and figured I might as well put something up.

Right now, my brand new Palm Pre is syncing a small selection of my music library from iTunes, which in and of itself it kindof cool. The iTunes syncing is amazingly easy, but I'm going to hold judgement for now until it finishes. If it got my contacts it'd be sweet. The rep at the Sprint store was able to sync from my iPhone several things, but I didn't see the contacts list. We'll see if iTunes syncs them. I did add my facebook account and as promised it created a contacts list from that information, but I was driving at the time so I didn't see if they were combined with other contacts.

On first impression I'm a little ambivilant about several aspects of the phone. I like the weight and I don't mind at all that it's a little thick. But the slider and the keyboard feel a little cheap. Although the one handed mechanics of the slider are great. On the software side of things, finding certain settings is a little odd sometimes, but the app catalog is ULTRA easy to use. And the phone is FAST. Everything is FAST, loading new applications, quitting, backgrounding, switching, using. It's all so very smooth.

WebOS 1.0.2 is out, I'm going to update to it.
