Summary: These machines were THE tool for a professional, just a few years ago. There still are the die-hards who rely on 'em, for scheduling, database info, instant memos and thousands of apps that were created for Palm. The E2 is a fine specimen of the Palm family thin sleek roughly a 40 hour battery life.
Excerpt: I really like this product a lot. I think the operating system is way more stable than the pocket verison of windows. The product is nice looking, a good size, easy to carry with you, but not so tiny that you are going to lose it or be unable to use it because the keys or screen are too small. The handwriitng reconigition is easy to use and the programs- phone book, address book, calander, etc. really make it easy to organize your life and be on top of things.
Excerpt: The Palm Tungsten E handheld is great. I have been having issues recently keeping both my personal and work calendars organized and this was the answer. I plug into my USB and it synchs with my work outlook client, appointments, contacts, tasks. All the tools to keep my professional life together. Then there is my personal calendar. Doctor appointments, school appointments, personal to-dos, grocery lists. This is great.
Excerpt: I got it and I love it. Not very easy to use with computer, but after some time -got use to it. I like the color, you can but additional parts. I use it a lot, and can't live without it. I think that every busy person should have one. Look in the Internet for better prices.
Excerpt: I've probably had my PDA for 6-7 years. I was getting tired of trying to keep up with address, phone, email changes, and all the different places I had to make my changes. So that's why I initially bought my old Palm 100. About a year later, I upgraded to the Tungsten E. The Calendar and Contacts modules are terrific.
Excerpt: The lifetime on these devices seems to be about two years. I've dropped mine multiple times, but it finally stopped working about a month after the last fall with no apparent provocation, no nothing. While it was working, though, it was a very useful tool. I used a limited number of programs on it, and didn't take advantage of some of the features. If all you want is a PDA to look up drug names (yay Epocrates!), go with a cheaper model.
Excerpt: I had one of the early m100s and was so happy with it, till I got this. Color screen, easier to read, more applications, and for someone who wants a phone to talk with and a PDA to do everything else with, this fills the bill nicely.
Excerpt: This Palm definitely gets the job done. I like the Bluetooth option as well- saves me from having to enter information on more than one device (ie, cell phone). Small, fits in my purse. No problems as of yet. Product was cheaper on the Palm website than where I bought it. Bummer.
Excerpt: The Palm Tungsten E2 is a great handheld PC. It has a lot more storage when purchased with an SD card. Easy to use. Instructions are simple and easy to follow set up guide. The slim look is not bulky and is easy to carry with you. Well recommended. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
