I bought Tungsten E2 with the intention to use it as a portable editor, to input text when I don't have access to my main laptop. It proved to be ideal for that, although I did struggle with the default onscreen keyboard and found the Grafitti feature completely useless. However, I solved that...

BACKGROUND ******************** I am a bit of a gadget nerd. I love gadgets. When I see one I don't need, I'll find excuses to need one. I started a new job few months back, and I saw one of my workmate pluggin a PDA to a craddle everyday, until the day I asked him about it. When he showed me, I...

I spent quite some time researching Palm's because my fiancé wanted one for Christmas. Whilst I may be a bit of a geek I had no experience of these at all. After a few weeks reading and talking to people it seemed that this Tungsten had what I needed, it had a nice clear screen, high resolution...

I bought the E2 about a year ago (2007). Since then I have greatly enjoyed using it. This Palm Pilot comes with Real Player, and all the other great programs that Palm always includes.

What a great little PDA. This is my first real PDA that I have owned. When looking to buy one with a limited budget I wanted to make sure that the one I got was going to be adequate.

Palmone E2 looks ok but has some serious faults that make it a questionable buy. The calculator, the most basic of functions has an error that means the percentage key does not work. A simple calculation like 200 + 5% yields a result of 2.05 not the normal answer of 210. In this day and age even...
