After using various Palm devices (most recently Treo 700p) for the past 8 years, I have made the big switch (to a Verizon Curve 8330 using BB Internet Service). I have hundreds of records, notes, memos, contacts, etc. and have now made the transition. I am glad I switched, but I learned a whole lot in the process. For a detailed discussion of my discoveries, and why I love my BB now, see my blog post: charlesgoldman.wordpress.com/2008/09/21/going-paperless-and-getting-organized/
[I can copy-and-paste the contents of the blog post here, if anyone would prefer.]
I very much welcome further discussion of ways to make the best use of BB and "cloud" computing.
I would also be willing to share specifics of how I actually transferred the data over (the snyc app included with BB desktop did not work at all).
