    So I received my Pre 3 today. Now what?

    It's my first webOS device, and I'm not really sure where to begin. I've noticed a bunch of Getting Started guides around this site, but none seem tailored for the Pre 3. Does such a guide exist?

    If not, what's the best practice for setting up?

    - What's the best way to get my contacts (extracted from my last phone in a .csv file) onto the phone, without importing all the random contacts my gmail account has harvested over the years?

    - What are some of the must have webOS apps?

    - Is Google Maps available? I seem to be stuck with Bing.

    I used my gmail to sync, so use this as an opportunity to clean house? I keep my gmail contacts lean and mean as I go through a lot of phones.

    Get Preware installed, install any patches and my favourite Battery Saver

    Twitter, Bad Kitty
    Facebook
    Box.net client if you have an account
    Poster if you have a WordPress blog
    Evernote
    Tapnote is also a good note app if you a dropbox account even more so if you have a TP

    Good advice.

    For others who find this in future, I:
    - Exported contacts I wanted to keep from gmail into a spreadsheet
    - Used that to figure out the format gmail expects
    - Replaced the data in that sheet with the real contacts I'd backed up from my phone (takes a little massaging, but 30 mins should sort it)
    - Deleted all my gmail contacts
    - Uploaded the spreadsheet
    - Sync with my phone

    Brilliant job. Now I'll never lose my contacts, my email & phone contacts are merged, which is useful, and it only took a half hour.

    I'm liking synergy.

    I made a new gmail account to avoid deleting names, and just did a straight copy.

    Apps...
    Forums of course
    Carbon for twitter, but spaz is a good free option
    Preware
    Beeb
    Accuweather
    Freetether
    Internalz
    Batterymonitor
    Pretext is a good notepad
    There are good tube and bike rental apps if you're in london
