I wouldn't want to bet on it. I haven't seen the N900 PIMs but if they 
are as poor as the N800 ones were, GPE is going to be essential.

BTW are you going to issue an update for the GPE apps for OS2008 at all, 
or are they now dead? I'll be using my N800 for a good while yet, and I 
rely on GPE. No showstoppers, but a way to export and then erase 
historical data up to the most recent 31st Dec would be nice :-)
