One of the most common complaints (beside not being a phone :-D ) about Internet Tablets is not being good a PIM. Perhaps Garnet will (soon) bring P3 (Palm PIM Power) to Maemo platform. In the meantime, have we got any solution at hand? Yes? No? Perhaps?
Well, from my (as usual) point of view the answer is definitely “yes!” . IT’s application base has grown a lot since the 770 eve.
As of now, my choice for my PIMing needings is GPE Calendar, along with GPE Contacts and GPE Summary applet. Just installed both on my N800 and, beside some minor and issue (more involved with what I’d expect to find, than to GPE’s functionalities) the result is more than good.
Contacts and events are easy enough to manage and the GUI makes a good use screen real estate. As far as I cans see some minor visual glitches ware aloso fixed in latest release.
I have only a few “complaints” about calendar:
- It would be great to be able to add contacts to an event, and thus being able to open VOIP client with a click.
- Using “zoom +/-” should act slightly differently, going from day->week->month->year, and not zooming on month before going to day. Not sure my explanation is clear enough but, well, give it a try! ;)
- It would also be nice to have a tighter overall integration with other system applications and GPE tools themselves.
In short: a great suite. It worth a try (at least)! ;)
Did you tried GPE’s apps? Let’s comment it!
