21st Century Phone

Even before the recent buyout offer from HP, I had decided to give up on Palm. The trouble is that I had decided to jump to Android, and didn't want to switch carriers away from AT&T. This changed when I realized that AT&T finally has an Android phone that is comparable to Verizon's Motorola Droid. It's called the Motorola Backflip, and now I have one. In fact, I am typing this here blog post with it, in Emacs, on a UNIX server, over SSH, via 3G. This thing is like a little laptop. It's taking some getting used to, but it operates so logically, and so close to the way I want it to, that I will definitely expend the effort.
