Excerpt: Great for storing phone numbers. The calculator feature is easy to use and easy to read. It has games as one of the features and this is a great way to pass time. It can also easily back up the files on my computer so* *that I never worry about losing the files. The only drawback is the poor battery life. It seems to need a lot of recharging. This was given to me as a gift so I am not sure of the cost. It also has the ability to store a book on it. This is...
Excerpt: This hand held Palm was given to me by my son about a year ago. It is still working, with no problems encountered. It is very useful for keeping track of all my doctor appointments. It is great for storing phone numbers. Small and compact. Screen is clear and easy to read. I find the calculator is very useful. A great pastime, ..
Excerpt: I had gotten a Tungsten E a couple of years ago at Target for around $200. I was impressed with the increase in memory and the fact that, like it's predecessor, it could syncronize contacts and calendar with Microsoft Office Outlook. It also came with standard issue "documents to go" software which permits syncronization of microsoft excel and word files. I liked the fact that it was light.
Excerpt: This is a very reliable palm product. I have had my Tungsten E2 for a few years and not had any major challenges with it. It is simple to use and does the basics of what I need it to do. I would definately recommend this for individuals who are not particular technically inclined but still want to utilize the efficiency that comes with using a palm or PDA device.
Excerpt: I did really like this Palm, when it was working. It was simple to use, and got the job done. I don't need a whole lot of features, I was really just using it for contacts and the calendar. For those purposes, it's a great product. My only issue with it is that I can no longer use it because it broke, and I have no clue how. I have a case for it, and it stays in my purse, which normally is not being thrown around!
Indispensable, but can't upgrade because it's obsolete.

Summary: Bought it to replace damaged unit. Like how it stores address & phones, schedules, and memos. Like handwriting recognition. Dislike that Palm discontinued making PDAs; I didn't want to upgrade to a Palm Cell Phone, which is easy to hack. Can't compare to others, 'cause I've not used other PDAs.
Summary: THIS PRODUCT IS GOOD FOR ADRESS INFOR. AND USING THE CALCULATOR AND ALSO TAKING QUICK WHEN THERE IS NO PAPER HANDY. THIS PRODUCT WILL BE GOOD FOR ANYONE ON THE GO HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING ON THE WEB I DO HAVE THE TUNGSTEN E2 WHICH IS MUCH BETTER.
Summary: I purchased this hand held for my 87 year old father, so he'd have something to play Solitaire on. It came with Solitaire loaded and also included a CD with more software. I was unable to download anything else, probably because I have a different model hooked into my computer and it was confused, but my Father loved his solitaire game. I put birthdays into it, as well as addresses of all the family I could find.
Summary: I have had 3 Palm products for work and found this style perfect for my job. The Palm I purchased (used) came promptly and in working order. It looked brand new except for when you are using the writing screen area you can't use the keyboard or number section unless I take the extra step and go to top and use edit/keyboard/numbers section.The writing area is off and I can't get it work even with hard sink. For the money I paid it was a good deal.
Summary: I have used several models of Palm and this one rates good to me. It is not as powerful as the 72 or the E2. They can do pictures and music. The E can do that also but it is slower and after a while, you get tired of waiting. Also, the battery does not last very long. If you want to track your schedule, contacts and play solitaire, this will do those things just fine. The 1 gig SD card is great but again, it is slow and uses up a lot of battery.
