N900 from Nokia

I’m sporting a new phone.  Since Palm doesn’t seem to have a big future I figured that this might be a good time to jump ship and step into the 21st century.  I’ve had a Palm Pilot, a Visor, a Treo 90 (still no phone), and finally a Treo 600, complete with a phone bolted on but that’s it for me.  There appears to be no good way to get my contacts off of this thing and in this day and age, that’s a problem even for me.

Of course I can get the basic contacts off but no one seems to know what to do with the proprietary stuff like the four customizable fields or the contact categories.  Naturally that’s where I kept birthdays, spouses, kids, and anniversaries.  That’s 625 manual edits that I need to make.  Anyway, that’s why I decided to abandon ship and move to something else, hence the N900.  Okay, that and my Wife saying “when are you going to get a new phone?” and Kyle at Linux Journal singing the praises.
