Wordpress App for Symbian OS


Having the facility to ‘Blog’ from your smartphone is, I think great. Ok, maybe it’s because I’m a power user of smartphone devices aka geek! ๐Ÿ™‚ But! it enables you to post a quick blog whilst being mobile, without being tied to your desktop/laptop PCs.
iPhone and Blackberry users have had a unique WordPress app for some time now. Now it’s come to the Symbian community and is available from the Ovi Store. WordPress have yet to announce it! could only find mention of support for iPhone and Blackberry OS devices.

Another successful data conversion…!


Over the last 17 years, I’ve converted data many times from older Palmtop Computers (Psion 3, 3a, 3c, 3mx, Revo, Series 5/5mx/7) on to new PDAs (Pocket PC, Palm) and now mobile Smartphones (iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android).
Tonight I did another successful conversion of data, in this case 748 data address contacts from an old Psion Series 3mx into Microsoft Outlook Contacts for sync’ing on to a Blackberry. To say, the user was happy to have moved that mass of valuable contact information from a prehistoric (yet dearly loved old) Psion on to a modern Blackberry smartphone, is an understatement! ๐Ÿ™‚
If Palmtopman (c/o Ozzie Hall-Osman) can ever help you with a similar conversion?ย Call me sometime 07889 374086ย ๐Ÿ™‚

TESTIMONIAL RECEIVED: โ€œPalmtopman keeps users mobileโ€
Our grateful thanks to Ozzie Hall-Osman for his help and assistance in transferring of contacts data from an ageing Psion to a Blackberry Curve via Microsoft Outlook. The original data was speedily transferred to a pst file which was e-mailed back to us for transfer to Outlook and onward to the Blackberry. Thanks to Ozzie for his helpful talk through of this process which has saved re-entering 759 contact details.
Much appreciated,
Deryck Barker & Lady Caroline Ley
