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: 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...
Summary: I've used this device as my main PDA for a couple years now, and I like it quite a bit. The hardware is quite nice, it is sad that Palm stopped progressing with PalmOS. The good news is, thanks to hackers like the people at [...], you can now easily put your own software on the Palm TX. You can already put OpenMoko on it, and I'll bet soon you'll be able to run Android on it.
If you want to try yourself, I've been working on making it easy to do.
Summary: The Palm TX replaced my Tungsten E. It was bought from a 2rd party vendor through through Buy.com. Delivery was received within the shortest part of the time period given. So far it is working well. It runs all my old software fro the Tungsten E. The only wish is it would be nice if Palm updated the WiFi for better speed.
Summary: Telling me that I needed to get organized, my wife got me a Palm TX recently for my birthday. I thought it was cool to buck the trend surrounding overhyped Apple products like the iTouch, and instead go for something from the slightly directionless, humble Palm Corp. Its untrendiness does give me some cause for worry: will the company continue to develop the product? From what I've heard, the answer is no; Palm has given up on its PDAs, instead moving toward smartphones.
Summary: This was a great way to get the top of the line product with all the bells and whistles without paying the top dollar. I was worried about getting a worn pilot but it looked like new and has not had any issues so far. The wifi internet works pretty well.... have had some page size issues, but other than that a good choice.
