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.
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.
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.
