Another successful data conversion…!

03/11/2010

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

Smartphone OS Battles

13/10/2010

There are many different graphs around these days showing different statistics on the ongoing battle between PDAs/Mobile Smartphone Operating Systems. I found this graph the other day and though that I’d share it with you along with my opinion and thoughts.

ย 
One OS not shown here is the huge Symbian OS that’s found in the majority of mid-low end mobile smartphones these days from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and others.
However, this graph is interesting and when you look around at what people are using, especially in major cities, you won’t be surprised to see Apple’s iPhone OS in the lead, I believe especially as iPhone’s are now on most UK Cellular Networks (E.g. O2, Orange, Vodafone, 3). Google’s Android OS appearing in many smartphones is a close 2nd. I’m surprised to see Blackberry SO low on this graph, as I firmly believe that Blackberry is a leader on the corporate market place. Windows Mobile may just creep back with the launch this week of the new Windows Phone 7! Palm still (bearly) on the graph might also bounce back next year, with a new lease of life now the HP have bought Palm!
We shall see……… My vote as I’m sure my regular Blog readers will know is now firmly with the iPhone OS. Oh, I love my iPhone 4! ๐Ÿ™‚
