What PDA/Phone for kGTD/Mac?

Hi all,

Just getting into this whole GTD thing, but I use Win @ work, so I need to carry the whole shebang with me from my PowerBook running kGTD.

I have a BlackBerry 8700 which is awesome for e-mail, web (I commute into NYC and I hate carrying newspapers), but really only works with Outlook (I have a PC, but I really have enough of that at work). I'm probably going to return it (I'm on day 27 of 30 of Cingular's return), but I'm hesitant to go back to my p910a because it didn't really sync well via iSync (it's been awhile, so maybe it's gotten better with 10.4.5???).

Does anyone out there use Series 80? The Nokia 9300 was released today by Cingular, and I'm thinking this might do the trick (850Mhz, EDGE, good web browsing, Office, PIM, blah, blah, blah). Mainly - will it sync categories somehow? This seems to have been the bane of iSync unless you're using a Palm...I think I have a T3 kicking around, but I really don't want to get into the web via bluetooth stuff again.

I really dig Mail/iCal (and soon kGTD???), but the Outlook/Windows syncing has always been quite painless wether it be with SE, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, etc. I want it to work so bad, but if it's a pain I'll have to rethink it.

In all these years, I've never actually owned a Nokia...personally, I'm a SE guy, so I'm a bit nervous....

Comments, etc, are greatly appreciated...

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
