Summary: Despite reading lukewarm reviews, I have had no problems with my Palm Tungsten T in the first 6 months. All software and hardware functions as expected. The MP3 (and other formats, depending on software) playback is of reasonable quality.
Pros: unable to connect to the internet wirelessly
Cons: unable to connect to the internet wirelessly
Summary: Great, great Palm device! I'm an historical user of Palm OS and this was the best Palm device I could afford when I bought it. Now it is superseeded by Tungsten 3 device, but I am sure that Tungsten family is great.
Summary: A good, small PDA with great color screen. Expansion slot is useful for additional storage. (I've used mine for downloading regional detailed maps for travel.) I wish I could hot sync using Bluetooth (with a Mac PowerBook). As far as I can tell, this is not possible.
If there were more programs it could run it would be better...

Excerpt: Ok - first I should confess that I recently sold my Palm Tungsten T and got myself an iPhone. And to be perfectly honest I have not regretted the switch. I wonn't go on about it here (see my iPhone review instead), but as PDAs go the iPhone tops the bunch!
Excerpt: I bought a brand new "T" to replace my Palm Vx which had done me a good turn but was beginning to play up. I loved the "T" right from the start, it was fast in its work, small for my handbag or pocket and did all the usual things like Date Book, Contacts, etc and one press on the Hot sync button on...
Pros: Brilliant when new
Cons: After two years use it begins to deteriorate
Poor software bundle, dubious build quality, poor battery life.

Excerpt: I bought a Palm T series and after a year it developed a screen fault called screen drift. This means that in order to tap on an icon to activate a program I have to tap about 2cm below it. That means when the slider is shut I loose the use of the bottom row of icons on the screen.
Excerpt: the palm tungsten T2 is a well desighned and very robust handheld it fells unlike some handhelds sturdy and durable but still maintains a quality feel to it. Its memory is big enough but i personally think that they could have made it a bit larger as even though it can use SD cards to store data...
Excerpt: What more do you want - ok perhaps a built in phone? - Advantages: Lot of useful features, expansion slot for more memory, bluetooth for the "wireless experience" - Disadvantages: pulling down the cover can get a little tedious
Excerpt: Ahh, the joys of using your palm for pleasure...NOT THAT WAY! I'm talking about the Palm Tungsten T handheld PDA, a fully functional, palm sized computer. I must admit, I'm a bit biased being a computer enthusiast but, on the flip side, that also means that you can trust what I'm saying as truthful...
Pros: Its a palm sized, fully functional computer
Cons: Grafitti interface can go haywire with overuse
Excerpt: I've owned this Palm for just under 9 months now and it has been quite an eye opener. I had wanted to own one of these since they first came out but the initial cost was rather expensive so I held off until it dropped in price.
