Excerpt: Being old admirer of Palm, passing from model to model, I specially postponed the next inevitable upgrade of my handheld computer up to the coming out of the full-function device on the basis of 5.0 OS. Last time Palm Company began to lose strongly their positions in the market of pocket computers and I did not doubt that the premiere will be something worthy. I was not mistaken, engineers and designers have worked on glory.
Excerpt: Palm is the grandfather of modern handheld computers, having been around a lot longer than its Windows Pocket PC-based competitors. The Tungsten-T2 is the company's latest offering, and the successor to its original Tungsten-T. Not only does the T2 have a beefier specification, but it includes brand new handwriting recognition software.
Excerpt: Palm's latest handheld, the Tungsten T2, forms one third of the company's range of wireless networking professional PDAs. Like its predecessor, last year's Tungsten T, the T2 can connect to your Mac or mobile phone via a built-in Bluetooth chip. The other two PDAs in the Tungsten range, the C and the W, connect via 802.11b and GPRS respectively. None of the three combines two or more of these connection options.
Conclusion: All in all, we really like the Tungsten T. The handheld is overall well-designed, well-engineered and befitting of Palm's history. The overall feel and grip of the handheld is also second to none, and with all due respects to other vendors, it does seem that only Sony is capable of catching Palm when it comes to designing cool and sleek-looking handhelds.
Conclusion: The new Palm's model can be regarded as a realization of the new operating system and as a finished product meant for end users to solve their day-to-day problems. The estimation in these cases will differ, and the latter will also depend on whether the current market situation is accounted for. The Tungsten T is first of all an interesting "canonical" soft hardware realization of the new operating system made by the OS developer.
