  • Need your comments re: Outlook-based GTD and Cell Phones

    I currently use Outlook 2007 with the Net-Centrics add in. I sync this to a Palm Tungsten and am satisfied with the environment. However, I am now looking for a new cell phone, and see that I could possibly do away with my Palm and use the phone for Outlook/GTD. Does anyone have experience with this environment? What phone and model do you use? How well does your phone handle Tasks (that is the most valuable part of Outlook for me, with calendar coming next and email last). Does your phone require MS Exchange Server for email, or can it access POP3/SMTP mail systems?

    Update to my original post

    Since creating this thread, I have visited a couple of wireless providers. I believe I have narrowed down my choice of manufacturers to Rim, producer of the Blackberry. If you have experience with using Outlook with the NetCentric Add-in and a Blackberry, I would like to hear your thoughts.

      I am in exactly the same situation, I use outlook with the add netcetric add-in and a palm e2, however i also have a Nokia e65 that is in sync via ms exchange server at work, The palm and cell phone is good for reminders, since they beep at deadline and to transfer pim data between to computers, but good for writing new tasks other stuff due to the small keyboard and screen. I consider small net-pc for my next upgrade and use that when out of office.

        I use Outlook (without the Net-Centrics add in) with an HTC s620 Windows Mobile Standard 6.0 phone which cost £45 from eBay as a refurbished product. It has a QVGA landscape screen, front qwerty keyboard and wifi, but no 3G. I've found this setup to work very well with the 3rd party Agenda One calendar/tasks/contacts replacement. I also use Opera Mini for web browsing and I actually find it better that the iPhone 3G as I usually only get a GPRS signal where I live and work.

        I have a BlackBerry Bold for work but I can't add 3rd party apps. I've found the HTC s620 to be superior in almost all respects; the Bold has a better screen, GPS and 3G but the OS and stock broswer are straight out of the '90s. Newer models might be better...

          Outlook GTD Add-In and BB Bold

          I am in the process of implementing the Outlook GTD Add-In from NetCentrics. I have a Blackberry Bold running through a BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server). I will let you know how it translates over. I am also experimenting with WebIS's Pocket Informant v1.5 for the BB doing a compare contrast with the native BB equivalents.
