Geeky discovery

Geeky discovery: (Apologies to those who think the following seems like I discovered the obvious.) With a few hours in an airport and on a plane last evening, I wasted some time continuing my Treo 700p discovery tour. While the phone’s 1.3 MP camera is far superior to my previous Treo’s camera, it’s still not my camera of choice — no flash or zoom, for instance. I typically have my Cannon PowerShot SD-600 with me (geez, I feel like this post is filled with product placements) and use it for photos and quick videos. While messing around with the phone, I noticed that it uses the same size memory card as my camera and wondered what would happen if I put the card from my camera into the slot on my phone? In one of those rare moments of gadget bliss, I discovered that my phone’s camera software read the photo and video files from my camera and that I could use Sprint’s (gee, my third brand mention in one post) photo mail to post a photo from my camera’s memory card to my Flickr (four) account. Having mobile broadband enabled me to upload this 1.5 MB photo in less than a minute.

Bonus link: Johnnie Tech shows how to transfer MP3 files from your computer to a memory card to listen to with a Treo and about mid-way through the video asks, “Who is Robert Scoble?” (Gotta love it.)

    The problem with your product placements is that I am going to end up buying a Treo 700p. I am trying to hold off.
