I'm using the google calendar and contacts, and it (for the most part) works seamlessly, showed up on the Pre3's different profile quite nicely. True, there are a few glitches with synching calendars, most observed when travelling overseas and using a foreign SIM card and generally showing up as duplicate entries, but that all can be lived with. Still, I miss the Palm Desktop.

This afternoon I got a SMS and an email from AT&T; it seems they spotted the Pre3, saw it as a smartphone, and unilaterally switched me to a data plan appropriate to it. As I then had the Pre3 de-SIMed and de-powered, I told AT&T that I was not using it, had gone back to my 'old' phone, and they switched me back to what I'd had previously.
Frankly, an expensive data plan is not on my To Do list. Which is why the Pre3 will go on the market and why I will not be buying an Android device. Once one sees what cellphone service (voice, SMS, data) cost abroad, the very notion of paying into AT&T's coffers at rates that would be shockingly noncompetitive almost everywhere else in the world does not fill me with enthusiasm. So I, like Homie the Clown, don't play dat.
