It does not work and i have never been able to use it.
9 November 2013
Summary: I bought this product about a month ago and have never been able to get the thing to work, dont now if it needs a card of somekind to make it work but it still does not work I spent all that money on something that i have never been able to use and will never purchase another one. I am now in the process of buying a different one, hopefully i will be able to actually use this one.
Excerpt: They no longer seem to make a quality product. I had problems with this unit from the first. The battery died early, but luckily I had bought a replacement so was able to use it longer. Then when it got stuck in a cycle of trying to calibrate the screen it was $159 to get it repaired, so now I am without a PDA at all. This is ridiculous to charge almost as much to repair as it is to buy a new one or a cell phone with a PDA built in. I am really disappointed in the...
Excerpt: I have owned this product for a little over a year and already it is not functioning. I have taken very good care of it, I have not dropped it or gotten it wet. The screen has always made an annoying buzzing noise and now it behaves erraticly at best. I would not recommend this product to anyone, it is not worth the price payed.
Disappointing, inflexible, music program very exclusive

Summary: Palm One Tungsten E2 disappoints me in several ways: 1. Neither backward-compatible, nor easily shares with other systems. 2. Using, (desktop-wired and laptop wireless), Windows XP, Vista, MS Media Player, Easy Reader, Nokia Synchronizer proved either incompatible, or extremely difficult. 3. Bluetooth connection required almost a 1/2 hour. 4.
Summary: I bought this E2 as replacement for one I had lost. That one downloaded apps and e-books so easily. This E2 somehow needed a super high learning curve to download apps and I spent hours trying to sync info from PC to handheld- needed to use Palm's Help via chat to get started. I still have not been able to download any info into my expansion card- need time.
Summary: Perhaps I am wrong to assume that the Palm Tungsten E2 should be easy to sync with my Macintosh computer. After trying everything that I could think of and going onto the Palm website and reading the answers to all the questions relating to syncing it with a Mac, it still wouldn't work. So...I took the plunge and called the support line for $14.95.
Summary: Recently Palm has been integrating Windows Mobile into their devices rather then the Palm OS, when seeing devices like this it's rather to see why. This now being the 3rd palm based device I have owned is the most disappointing. Pros: Sturdy metal construction that feels solid, functional IRDA, A very nice chrome stylus, came with a full size keyboard.
Summary: I bought the Palm Tunsten E2 because I had lost my device. Like the previous model this one is fraught with problems regarding synchronization. It hangs at best and I have to customize to get it to synch anything. Recently it updated my laptop and completed wiped out my palm pilot. After much trial and error I did a hard reset and got my life back. I have also discovered that if I updated from the laptop to the palm pilot everything works ok.
Great idea but went to market too soon with too many problems

Summary: I like the Palm handhelds in general and have relied on them for years and this one promised a nice combination of features at a relatively low price. Unfortunately the device seems to have been rushed to market too quickly. I spend way too much time fighting two awful aspects of the E2 in particular.
