Palm Tungsten E review


Palm Tungsten E

Affordable; nice color display; SDIO expansion card slot; runs Palm OS 5.2; MP3 and multimedia support; robust software suite.

Battery isn't removable; no voice recorder.

With a high-resolution color screen, a sleek design, an expansion card slot, and a $199 price tag, the Tungsten E will hit the handheld sweet spot for many consumers.

Palm - Tungsten T2


No sharp executive or journalist about town is complete these days without a smooth PDA to slip into his or her top pocket, and Palm has been at the forefront of the computer-in-your-hand revolution. The aim ...

Easy and versatile to use, the Tungsten T2 is both cheaper than its ancestor and has the additional media functions that will attract the growing army of MP3 fans who want to be entertained when they're not keeping up on the office paperwork.

Palm - Tungsten T


It seems that 2003 is becoming the year of the PDA, with several of the larger venders - Dell, for example - getting models into the market for the first time, while the older, better known ...

With the Tungsten T, Palm has a serious contender to put up against Pocket PC devices, but it's expensive and Pocket PC devices do have more features for the same money. Having said that, the Palm Tungsten T is fast, very compact and has an easy to use...

Palm Tungsten E2


The E2 is an upgrade from the popular Tungsten E, featuring a faster processor, a brighter screen and Bluetooth 1.1 connectivity.

Excellent display quality, fast processor

No Wi-Fi, no camera nor voice recorder

The low-cost Palm Tungsten E2 is a comfortable entry level model for business users.

Palm Tungsten T5


The biggest selling point of the Tungsten T5 is its 256MB of memory--almost four times as much space as its predecessor (the Tungsten T3). Sure, you c...

Large internal non-volatile memory

No cradle

The Tungsten T5 will appeal to people who want a Palm-based business handheld that can double as a portable storage device.

Tungsten E2 PDA


The Tungsten E2, Palm's replacement for the Tungsten E, now offers Bluetooth and data-saving flash memory. It's the cheapest and the least powerful member of the business-focused Tungsten lineup, so it's not ideal for power users--but PDA neophytes...

The Tungsten E2's five-way navigator button lets you operate the device with one hand and reduces the need for the stylus, an object I lose on my desk every 10 minutes. But be careful: More than once I inadvertently tried to store the stylus in the...

palmOne Tungsten E2


The Tungsten E2 is a good choice for a basic business PDA. It looks good, and displays PIM data and office documents in an attractive manner.

Sleek look; nonvolatile memory; excellent office-document reader software.

Still not quite powerful enough for video.

palmOne Tungsten T5


The new palmOne flagship business PDA, the Tungsten T5, may be the ultimate digital wallet: It has a massive 256MB of memory, for all your photos, music, and documents.

USB drive mode allows driverless access to data. Huge amount of built-in storage. Businesslike look.

No Wi-Fi. Doesn't support many Bluetooth cell phones. Inconsistent video playback.

Palm Tungsten T5 review


Intro It's no secret that the market for standalone handhelds is shrinking, but with the Tungsten T5, PalmOne is betting that there's still room for a plain old power PDA. The T5 is not a smart phone. Nor does it have Wi-Fi--unlike nearly every other...

Sleek and lightweight design; 256MB of memory; doubles as a USB drive; easy drag-and-drop file transfer; good battery life; bright screen.

No Wi-Fi.

Though it lacks Wi-Fi, the T5's solid performance and new features make it a perfect companion for mobile professionals.
