Just an update I suppose mainly for the benefit of Bienvenuto.
My progress on settings up on the Blackberry has been rather slow as I have little time to devote to it.
As far as Task/Action lists I have installed Pocket Informant. It seems to work pretty well. It syncs with tasks on Outlook very well. I use the GTS add in and it still works. The link between project and task is lost on the sync but this is not a big deal for me. At least the projects, tasks and contexts move over without a glytch. The problem is only that actions with future start dates are not hidden. This is a backwards step compared to my Palm set up and that of Outlook itself. Pocket Informant seem to have a Beta out that addresses this so I look forward to using the final version of that.
My main problem with the Blackberry are that all the categories are shared over tasks, notes and contacts which makes it much more cumbersome. This was not the way with my set up on the Palm Centro, where I have separate category lists for each.
There as also a problem in that I am used to using Keysuite on the Palm where I could have two note app and two calender apps. This was great for the work personal split. With the Blackberry I haven't found any other apps that provide me with the same facilty.
So for the moment I am keeping the Blackberry in a draw and still using the Centro. I suspect an Android could have been better for me but it would also have had other downsides.
I will put the time in getting the Blackberry up to fit for purpose when I have finally lost by Centro.
It's great for web browsing and has got some other nice toys but for sheer practicality for GTD it is still way behind the Palm Centro. At least for my way of working.
Just thought I'd put an update on.
Much more happy with the Blackberry now I have got used to it. Still not perfect. Some querky syncing going on at times and still no tasks with future date narks but I am really enjoying the good keyboard, the better web surfing, the better camera and many other features. I'm even getting quite good on the rollerball. Now using ActionPad and NextAction! which are pretty good and sync to Outlook.
I will post a separate thread to summarise better.
Have now discarded the Palm!
