Top 5 Reason to chose the Palm T/X

AdvantagesSpeed, versatility, capability, and ease of use!

DisadvantagesDoesn't play well with Vista (then again what does?)

"5 Reasons I think the Palm T/X is a great find. I began my PDA journey with the Handspring Visor , outgrew it and moved on to Handspring Visor Deluxe; bought most of the springboard modules, fax/modem, camera, memory, keyboard, etc and finally sold it and turned to the (all in one) Sony Clie NR70V (which I subsequently over worked and burned out). Thus began my 2 year search for a better PDA. I don't know why it took me so long to come back to the ..." Read review

Palm TX - Launched 2005 and still the top PDA

AdvantagesStable, excellent OS; masses of free software available; still the top dog.

DisadvantagesNone.

"The Palm TX has been around for a while now and so you may find it a little odd that I'm writing a review of it. More odd is the fact that the TX is still sold new, years after it first came out. The reason? As a PDA, it has yet to be surpassed. Not only is it extremely easy to use and connects to open wifi hotspots with ease, it also has a massive collection of free software available online - from games to productivity, from connectivity ..."

Palm TX

Advantageseverything! cheap reliable, fantastic features

Disadvantagesno spare stylus or screen protectors in box

"I got my new Palm TX in August this year and I have been very impressed with its performance and flexibility. I previously owned a Palm Tungsten E which screen was 320 x 320 resolution and had no Bluetooth or Wi-fi, so these 2 features are great additions for me. For those who have never used a PDA they are all touch screen and most have handwriting recognition to save having a keyboard and in Palm handhelds this is called Graffiti and is very handy ..."

PALM TX users Review -

AdvantagesEasy to use, fast, and capable

DisadvantagesNo Cradle

"I have worked the TX in a busy environment. utilising the WIFI, bluetooth and email, sms and mp3 ona daily basis. I must say it is very reliable, fast and easy to use. It is a great all round personal management tool. Slip a 1gig expansion card in it and you have plenty of room for mp3s, pdf docs, word, excel files and ebooks. Battery life is good however extensive use of wifi does drain it somewhat quickly but i've never experienced full drain. ..." Read review

T/X a disappointment

AdvantagesModernized for communications

DisadvantagesSteps backward for user-friendliness

"A step backward from the Tungsten T, my previous palm. The T/X has not moved forward, design-wise. And cut some useful features. No charge-indicator LED. Screen less responsive. It seems like its forever resetting itself, losing a number of settings along the way. Bottom of screen permanent virtual buttons are not user-configurable! BAD! This is not a happy camper! And this: now extra $ for cradle, which is badly designed, with insufficient place ..." Read review

Advantageshandheld pc, smaller than laptop

Disadvantagesno camera or would have 5 stars

"...then it converts it digitally. Palm dock allows you to synch with your PC and charge your palm which last upto 2 weeks for me as it turns itself off when not in use.

The wonderful world of Palm

AdvantagesClear/bright screen, easy to use software.

DisadvantagesPower button on top of unit is a bit temperamental

"The Palm TX is one of the best hand held units I have ever used, the screen is very vibrant and watching movies on the unit is excellent. The applications available for the Palm software are endless including, chess, word processor, MP3/MPEG player and countless amounts of games. As well as the TX being a wonderful unit to use, it also has a disadvantage; the power button on the top of the unit very rarely works and therefore I had to install ..." Read review

Palm T/X: business in a pocket

AdvantagesIt has loads of applications for every day business

DisadvantagesSoftware quite User-unfriendly

"I received the PALM T/X as a present and at the time the only data bank / portable personal data tool I had was an old Casio personal agenda. The PALM T/X is a very good device to store personal data, like Calendar, Phone book, etc. Also, I soon bought a 2Gb memory card, which allowed to greatly upgrade the device standard memory. One issue I found is the memory slot: in fact, there is no protection for the meory card, which may be accidentally hit ..." Read review

The best PDA I have used yet!

AdvantagesLarge viewing area, Large memory, Wi-Fi. Fast

DisadvantagesNo microphone.

"Having had a Palm Tungsten T, for about 3 years I decided to update, and went for the Palm T|X, and what a piece of kit! it blows anything else I have used out of the water! I use it for work and pleasure and would be totally lost with out it (It also can be used as a Sat Nav system as well) With its large viewing area it's great to surf the web via the built in Wi-Fi or through your GPRS phone via bluetooth. The screen can be rotated to ..." Read review

Palm Tx PDA

AdvantagesGreat media carrier. Light and compact

DisadvantagesHorrible setup instructions and connectivity with macs

"...very happy upon purchasing the palm tx model however, when the time came to sync it to my computer all hell broke loose. Because i use a mac it was terribly painfull to setup. The information on the website and the box is unhelpfull. I had to spend about 2 hours on the internet doing some research on how to sync. Although palm provides their own software, using would mean having to manually transfer all my contacts and information to that application. ..." Read review

Which One Is Which!

AdvantagesGreat Interface, Palm; Easy-To-Use-Buttons.

DisadvantagesNot Windows. Palm has Hotsync, but it is not very good or fast.

"...to you in the easy-to-use palm interface. Right from the old school palms, with black and white screens, Palm has used their icon-based operating system to sell their well designed product to us! Handspring combined the power of a phone to some palm-handspring PDAs and that worked well, but Palms focus was changing. They wanted to make easy-to-use products that people would buy because they look great and perform fast and because they were Palm! If ..." Read review
