The Palm User Group Vienna can well be considered one of the older Palm User Groups in existence. Ever since it was founded in 2003, Alexander Kozousek’s crowd had up to 10 visitors to its monthly meetings.
Most people followed the German Nexave news feed, which unfortunately was extremely slow even though it wasn’t updated a single time while we were there (so much about sending somebody there/about the new server):
Fortunately, my XPERIA X1 was tuned to Engadget…and quickly became the lust object for all attendants as news about the new boxen began to trickle out. General user sentiment was very positive – all attendants (yours truly excluded) were impressed by the “rich features” of the box:
Unfortunately, the announcement of EVDO-exclusivity did not go down well: on e user stated that he already was used to waiting, but now has “something to wait for”…
The BlackBerry was not liked too well:
In the end, I left the place impressed by the enthusiasm Palm’s recent announcement managed to create. I myself was not too impressed: the world imho doesnt need another web-only platform…and the lack of even rudimentary Palm OS emulation is appaling.
What do you think?
