(... I had to add "in the light of GTD" otherwise the title would sound off-topic
Just was reading a new review of Pre Plus and it reminded me of a question that is probably pretty basic but I want to make sure I am not misunderstanding.
It mentions the amount of Flash memory on the Pre Plus. Now, on my Palm T|E, that translates into, roughly, how many zillion bytes of notes I can carry around tracking all my tasks. I.e., the notes are stored on my standalone TE and I sync with the desktop.
When it comes to a given mobile smartphone (WebOS or Android or WinMo or Symbian or whatever mobile device), does it mean effectively the same thing or does it vary by OS and/or by device?
SPECIFIC EXAMPLE: if I buy a Pre, and use the Classic emulator or whatever, I assume that means all my text data used by my apps are locally available, regardless of whether I have a cell signal or a WIFI signal. What I don't know is how to determine whether my local data can be synchronized with a web-based source.
My impression is that it depends on the phone, the OS, and on whether there is a corresponding web application at all (let alone whether it supports mobile sync).
Assuming my impression is correct, and I really really want local storage and web synchronization, I think that means there aren't many options out there. I have mentioned http://notespark.com before on here; it is for the iPhone and I am pretty sure it supports full sync between the iPhone and my web-based data.
So am I correct, or are there actually a lot of options for this local storage/web sync capability and it is just a matter of choosing between features?
