Yesterday was the first Thursday of the month, and thus the Palm User Group Vienna met again. Since our former pub(the Salzberg)’s free Wifi wasn’t important any more(many of us now have GPRS), we decided to switch back to our former meeting point, the Pizza Plus…after all, nothing beats decent food .
Alex, the ‘PUM head’, played around with the ipaq rx4240 and was pretty impressed with it. The operating system worked surprisingly well, and the small size and great build quality didn’t fail to impress either.
The real star of this meeting was a blue Treo 650. The 650 was airbrushed in a cool metallic color – and had a MiniUSB port added. That port allows its owner to leave the Athena USB cable at home – very handy, as he travels around a lot.
Software was exchanged as usual, and various Palm related topics(GPS,..) were discussed. The sentiment has improved this time, people were less negative about the Palm platform’s future this week due to the Linux announcement:
Overall, this Palm User Meeting was very interesting. The visitor’s sentiment was much better than in the meetings before – I am sure that I will attend the PUG next time…
