    Hi my name is Katey, and I'm new to this forum!

    I'm currently working on a phd in mathematics, but I have done a lot of coursework in computer science, specifically in java and c/c++. I'm always interested in ways to use this background, and I've thought seriously about trying my hand at developing for the android platform!

    As far as phones go, I'm still using my 3 year old palm treo 700wx with Sprint. I thought I would be upgrading to a palm pre, but when the actual device came out, I was disappointed with some of its features (specifically lack of visual voicemail, no memory expansion, and the fact that they had to advertise copy/paste as an exciting feature bugged me--I've been doing that for years with windows mobile!).

    I'm really excited about upgrading to an android phone soon, but I'm researching and waiting for the "right" one. Right now I'm zeroing in on the samsung instinctq, hoping that it actually is real and not just a rumor!

    Anyways, hope to get to know y'all soon!
