Disappointing, inflexible, music program very exclusive
18 June 2010
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.
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.
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: Edits word documents and power points, and has a web browser. Responds to touch very well. comes with a keyboard and lots of chargers but no case.
Cons: There is no useful software that does not make the os crash. Browser does not play flash videos, or any other for that matter. NO WIFI and the screen is very small due to the graffitti 2 touch pad.
Summary: It was my first upgrade from my Palm V (yes, 2MB memory one, not Vx), but I regret. I need another Palm V for basic comupting.
Pros: Cheap and basic Palm computing. Bright and nice color screen.
Cons: I couldn't help writing after reading some other people's reviews. I have the same problem with my E2. They are: - very loud humming noise (around 5kHz) when the screen is on. - the digitizer alignment can't be fixed. I should guess 20 pixels off from what it points. It's very hard to get into al...
Summary: I've had my unit for 3 months it has been nothing but trouble. The device keeps getting a fatal error requiring me to do hard resets. Be aware that the system only works with a 1 gig or less SD cards. I would not recommend this product due to the unstable software and limited functionality.
Pros: large display, easy to navigate, display layout.
Cons: software is unstable, can't use 2 gig SD card, music player functions are too basic, expense software is limited.
Summary: When will buying $xxx worth of electroniics get you something that can play music and hold a calander without having a 40 hour learning curve.
Pros: Good that it combines PDA and Music Capabilities.
Cons: Many hoops to jump through with Real Player and Palm to get the music portion up and running. Does not recognize all SD cards. Relying on realplayer for the music is not a good idea. Realplayer is combersome and full of commercials. Volume control when using headphones does not give user muich co...
Summary: Since other manufacturers have dropped out of the Palm OS market, I'll probably choose to go with a Pocket PC PDA.
Pros: Fast, good display, lots of available software.
Cons: I have had rwo E2s and one E, and all three have failed. The E just stopped working, and several calls to tech support couldn't fix it. I replaced it with an E2, because the cost of service after 90 days was close to the cost of a new unit. My new E2 had problems with the navigation button within...
