HTC Touch and Gmail

Got a brand-new HTC Touch 3450 PDA/Smartphone. Neat. Its not that hard to use and setup although there are some quirks especially with WIFI. Comes with Windows Mobile 6.

Been trying to use gmail as a hub to get/send email for the mobile device. Seems nice with their gmail java midlet available at http://gmail.com/app. Then I tried using calendar via http://www.google.com/calendar, notebook via http://www.google.com/notebook/m. Very nice although it would be cool to somehow integrate the on the Today screen of the phone. Hmmm....

So far, the only problem I can report is trying to use gtalk for some time with the electronic on-screen keyboard. I think its overall a little bit of a pain to write a lot. So, if you have to do that, consider getting a model with the slide-out keyboard. Otherwise its cool.
