I recently became a proud owner of an iPhone when my Palm Centro died! While saddened by its death I had been thinking iPhone for a while (although I am a PC owner vs. Mac). In any event I viewed this as an opportunity to switch over. It was a nerve wracking process.
The iPhone does not sync with Palm and therefore I had to convert my calendar (which I rely on to organize my life) and contacts (which are critical to our business) to Outlook. I had not used Outlook much before and really loved my Palm software (and all the different versions I’ve had over time).
As a small business owner my time is all I have and it did take time to make the transfer. Having said that after the time investment I am completly happy with the iPhone! The apps are awesome, for me the Hockey Night in Canada, Tweetdeck and Canucks (all free) along with Hootsuite and Pac Man (Atari version & both with a minimal cost) are awesome. There are many others including some music I’ve downloaded to the iPod application that are great as well.
Bottom line – I highly reccomend the iPhone! Even if you have always been a Palm or Blackberry user it is worth it to make the switch.
