Palm Treo Pro – First Impression

leave a comment »

 

I got a new phone today, the Palm Treo Pro (unlocked edition).  I am switching from the HTC Touch Diamond.  This is my first non-HTC device in quite some time.  My first impressions of the Palm Treo Pro as good.  It is nice to have a full QWERTY keyboard back.  Even with the full keyboard the screen size does not suffer.  The phone handles nicely, speedy transitions and programs load quickly.  So far so good 🙂

This afternoon I loaded a series of programs to give the phone a run.  This includes: Office, Live Services, Office Communicator, One Note, and Live Mesh.

Invincible Mailbox – Microsoft’s Live@edu

leave a comment »

I want to take this chance to write a little bit about Microsoft’s Live@edu email offering.  Central to the Live@edu offer is Exchange Labs, which offers an unprecedented 10 GB of email storage as well as 20 MB attachments.  This is a fully exchange enabled mailbox that gives students all the advantages of an enterprise solution – for free.

Students can share calendars and contacts with friends and also schedule meetings utilizing the free/busy function of Exchange. In terms of hosted email solutions for students at Higher Education and K12 institutions this is the most advanced and feature rich option out there.

NO email or phone for 4 hours

I just got kicked off my email and phone for the next four hours.  I am part of the newest roll-out for the new unified communications beta.  Starting at 4pm today I will be using our new Unified Messaging tools.

Certainly a damper to my productivity right now, but I am looking forward to trying out the new system.  It should be very exciting and I will definitely post about my experience here.  I will be using the new beta of Office Communicator 2007 as well as the Catalina Unified Messaging (UM) telephone.  Stay tuned for more to come.
