I have used Palm handhelds for many years now starting off with the Palm Pilot Personal and moving up through the Vx, finally buying a Tungsten T about a year ago. I remember when I bought my first one that everyone was telling me I would never use it… how wrong could they be! The Tungsten T was...

ConsGrafitti interface can go haywire with overuse

Ahh, the joys of using your palm for pleasure...NOT THAT WAY! I'm talking about the Palm Tungsten T handheld PDA, a fully functional, palm sized computer. I must admit, I'm a bit biased being a computer enthusiast but, on the flip side, that also means that you can trust what I'm saying as...

Prosmall, fast, sexy, best palm ever

Consrelatively high price

I never thought I would make the case for a palm handheld from 3com. I used to be a dedicated Ipaq fan but got increasingly disappointed with it. So I decided to take a bold step and try out the new Palm Tungsten. In one word: AMAZING! I will compare, wherever possible the Tungsten with the Ipaq...

ProSmall. Syncs well with Mac OS X.

ConsSMS software lacking some functionality.

To be fair, I don’t really need one of these; I could probably get by with one of the far cheaper models that supply only the basic services such as an address book and a diary. But I like my gadgets and despite my not using all the functions available there are a few unique to this model that...

ProCompact, user friendly, cheap, bluetooth

ConsNo Wifi, low earphone output

I've owned this Palm for just under 9 months now and it has been quite an eye opener. I had wanted to own one of these since they first came out but the initial cost was rather expensive so I held off until it dropped in price. I bought it to help me through the final few months of my degree by...

ConsMay still be expensive

I was looking for an MP3 player for ages. A good one was about £150 and did more than I really needed. 15gig of space sounds nice on paper, but its actually quite difficult to fill. While browsing ebay for one, I glanced over the PDA section and noticed that ooooo....they had colour now. My Palm...

ProBrilliant when new

ConsAfter two years use it begins to deteriorate

I bought a brand new "T" to replace my Palm Vx which had done me a good turn but was beginning to play up. I loved the "T" right from the start, it was fast in its work, small for my handbag or pocket and did all the usual things like Date Book, Contacts, etc and one press on the Hot sync button...

Consweak battery

I purchased the Tungsten T after my wife stole my new Zire 71 from me. I really didn't care for the camera feature, but she loves it. So, I went with the T because of its size and I have not been disappointed at all. Previously, I owned the Palm IIIc. This is such a better unit. The 5-way nav is...

The only problem I see with this pda is that the operating system is still unsteady. For example there are still a lot of aplications that don't run. (avantgo sync fails very often) Old games have problems running too. What is a Pro for the tungsten t is that for me as a women it is very...
