replace sidekick with something that can talk to google calendar?

Got sidekick cuz of flat-rate data and continuous sync with web
(nielsen). The xmlrpc interface is great; the dngr.com guys have a great
sense of design. But the carriers make the policy decisions.

SwapMe is using nokia @@ phones (delicious mobile, from w3t-mit
meeting). Camera and bluetooth look nice, but I rely on a thumb

The $70 replacement has come in handy more than once.

Not being able to sync over bluetooth nor usb sucks.

t-mobile web site is slow, klunky.
Web2.0 calendars look nice. And now google has one. gtalk + gmail pretty
compelling. Can I use my own domain? Ben seems to be doing that
with ben@mit.edu

T-mobile is yet another password... Though a communication provider that
I pay monthly is perhaps somebody I want as an identity provider. Hmm...
Google no better? openid/sxip?

Moving things from todo to calendar and back sucks; better way is
psion's agenda = calendar + todo list

Palm got it right with search across all apps.

Some cameraphones are getting quite impressive. Video, even (did I
bookmark those amazon/t-mobile doodads?). Photo expense records,
contacts... What did my kid bring with him to a friend's house?


delicious mobile+sysadmin shopping
Problems? Issues? RFEs?
