I could almost hear my computer screaming “stop this madness” when I was trying to synchronize today yet with another new device, which in this case is the T-Mobile Dash. Synchronization was easy and my contacts, calendar, and tasks are now with me on the go.
T-Mobile Dash usability
The T-Mobile Dash navigation is actually very similar to the Cingular 3125 and the Motorola Q (see October 26, 2006 and September 9, 2006 in the 81-day-experiment for more details). These devices rely on the Home and Back buttons, combined with the left and right soft keys. In addition, the phone keys provide easy access to the phone as well as disconnecting after a phone call.
How about editing documents?
Just like the Cingular 3125 and the Motorola Q, you cannot edit documents on the T-Mobile Dash. You can view attachments but not edit them. I will be investigating some of the 3rd party tools at some point to see if they would do the editing job. But if document editing is one of your main needs, you probably want to be considering some of the other devices (such as the Treo 700 and T-Mobile MDA or similar devices).
Tomorrow, I will setup e-mail, and start working with some of the multi-media capabilities such as voice notes, and voice recognition.
