I don't use 1/2 the features of my Palm Centro -- not paying $50/mo for mobile broadband -- but I like the fact that it has a simple to use, well designed interface, which makes it easy to find and adjust the settings. I like that I can sync it to my PC *and* my Mac. (Makes it a snap to get the photos onto my computer.) I like that it has a real freaking keyboard on it, the better to text and/or update my address book, instead of having to push number keys between 1-3 times per given letter. I like that I can play music on it. I like that I can put documents on it. I like that I can sync a bluetooth keyboard to it and write on the fly.

It's the smartphone I've been waiting for since the first smartphones appeared on the horizon.
