The great "blackberryless" experiment (testing Notes Traveler this week)

Lotus Traveler which was announced back at the Lotus Collaboration Summit in NYC  provides out of the box mobile support for Windows Mobile devices.   I have been testing Traveler for a few weeks now, and it is now time to set aside my Blackberry for a week and carry only the Windows Mobile device.  I thought I could use them in parallel and still do some testing , but  I have had a Blackberry since 2001, and there is no question I am a “crackberry addict”, it has become painfully obvious that if I have my Blackberry I will use it.  This is not in any way a comment on the Traveler technology, more a comment of me being a creature of habit.  I will reserve my full comments on Traveler until later in the process, since I am pretty much limited by the Beta NDA anyway in what I can say right now. I am about 6 hours in to the Blackberry free experiment now, I miss my blackberry, but I am getting my mail, I have Sametime for Windows Mobile, and my phone is being forwarded.  If anyone has any suggestions for IM clients for Windows Mobile, or any other useful Windows Mobile apps, please let me know, I am knew to the whole Windows Mobile thing.

    Slingmobile for my slingbox is fantastic on my Windows Mobile phone. If you had that you could watch the Mets in the World Series, oh wait, sorry about that Emoticon

    Can’t believe you gave up the BB… I remember when you were first getting this going and you didn’t want to get rid of the BB – they are great devices.

    @1 Ouch Carl cheap shot at the Mets that hurt

    @2 Chris – I said I was giving up the BB for a week – not forever, but this forces me to use the Windows Mobile/Traveler combo which is really the only way to test it and kick the tires.
