Summary: I do wish Palm would pay attention to this market, small tho it is. It is older technology that could use an update.
Pros: For a PDA, it's superb, & rates 5 eggs. Internet is weak as already mentioned, but hey you should have been able to figure that out before buying it. I've used it every day for about a year, & have only good to say about it. I really didn't buy it for the WiFi, but it's nice to have for the occas...
Cons: I'll give it a con for its Internet capabilities, but it really doesn't matter to me because I don't use it for the Internet much.
Palm TX - Great PDA, but there is a learning curve

Summary: For me, the Palm TX is great. I use it almost everyday to keep track of my passwords, which I almost always forget because of the numerous websites that ask you to create an account for. It has all of my dates on there for me to keep track of using the Calendar.
Pros: - Wifi works well, I have connected to several networks, especially Free-Wifi Hotspots such as Panera Bread - Internet browsing is easy to use and simple with the Blazer internet browser, which is adequate albeit limited. There is a way to get Opera Mini working on the TX if you can find IBM's JV...
Cons: - Like the other review mentioned, there is no Java VM support or flash support so you will be unable to see those on certain websites. - Truth is, a lot of software on the PDA, and the PDA itself is outdated because it was released several years ago, I believe about four or so years ago. Documen...
Summary: I've had my TX for over a year, and I really like it. The TX was a hugh step up from my Prism Visor. I like the wi fi connectivity feature a lot, but it you are not using a Palm Treo phone with a UNET(?
Summary: The product arrived on time and in good condition. Getting it totally functional was another thing. I.E. You need to load additional software to get it to sync with outlook. The doc that comes with it doesn't cover much and you need to hit the web page and hunt for info, that I did not find easily.
Summary: Purchased this for my wife, as a replacement for an old Handspring Visor, after reading both positive and negative reviews here and with the realization that Palm may not be around much longer. Have thought about the Treo before but decided against it for various reasons.
Summary: I bought the PDA instead of the Treo because I didn't want to pay for a data plan as well as a voice plan. I chose the Palm TX with the hard case because it could go online, keep my calendar, lists, memos, and Office documents/sheets. Overall, it works well.
Summary: I had to replace a Treo accidentally damaged. I found after trying it that having both phone and PDA in one unit was unsatisfactory for me, largely because the unit was too bulky to wear comfortably on my belt. Going back to a tiny phone (Razr) and separate PDA has been a relief. And what a PDA.
Summary: I'm a long-time Palm user with limited money to spend tech-toys, so I have to make my investments count. Most recently, I had a Palm Zire 72 that I have absolutely worn out. Awesome machine that I needed to replace. I purchased the Palm TX after much thought and review.
Summary: I purchased this product as an upgrade for my Palm Tungsten C. I like the product (although I miss the Tungsten C keyboard) and the hard case has already proven very useful (when I dropped the machine on a tile floor).
Summary: I purchased the TX as a replacement for my ailing Tungsten T3. The TX instantly captivated me with its brilliant screen. Even on the lowest brightness, the scree was brighter than the T3. The wi-fi is nice, but a bit dated and slow. I don't find that I use it much.
