Excerpt: Bought my Palm tx a few years ago and although I have other newer toys, I find myself going back to it because it small and light weight and the most useful applications are MS commpatable. Lots of software and some is MS compatable such as spreadsheets and word processor and alltghough I haven't used it I believe slideshows are Powerpoint compatable. A relatively full size keyboard is also available.
Excerpt: Every techie needs a Palm t/x. It's my best friend. I keep my appointments and it reminds me. I watch movies when I am bored and out and about. I also listen to music, and play games. I keep track of what I eat and how many calories I burned and oh yea what exercises I do. I send emails and best of all, it wi-fi capabitible and I surf the net. About the only thing its missing is a phone. Now I know I could buy something silamular but if you don't have the money...
Excerpt: I purchased this product formyself at Christmas time. I am glad that I got it on sale!!!!! Six months after using it, the keyboard stopped comming up, it stopped preforming simple mathmatical functions (my checkbook program would never balance and the cal never added correctly), it stopped syncing my appointments to my laptop (always got an error message that there were too many appointmant even after i purged the ones that were older than one month. The only thing...
Excerpt: I take my Palm everywhere. It's an entertainment tool when I'm in "Wait" mode. I can surf the web, play games, view photos, listen to music, keep track of calendar and to-do's. I'm always jotting quick notes on my NotePad. I keep my grocery shopping list on it. The only fault I can find with it is the lack of Java. I can't use flash player. I don't know what to do about this. But in everything else, it rates very high on my scale.
Excerpt: I used palm products for about six years. I moved to them after they bought Handspring which made low cost PDAs running the palm OS. I upgraded my Palm E2 to get the Palm TX. It has several features that made my must have purchase of the time. The first was a solid address and calendar program. The Palm desktop Os was easy to use and was much faster than keeping a handwritten book. It imported and exports easily to other formats like outlook.
Summary: I have used Palm products since 2000, but since my T/X "died", I won't recommend a Palm product. I lost the ability to connect to WiFi after an update from Palm that was supposed to connect to VPN in a more secure fashion. Tech support is horrible. "Henry" and "Mike" wasted my time. I am still trying to get warranty service arranged, but I had to fax the proof of purchase and they are still waiting on this fax - I am not sure in which continent it ended up!
