  • Summary: Palm's latest wireless e-mail handheld is a big improvement over previous efforts, but it fails to truly outshine the competition.

Palm Tungsten W

PC Magazine

  • Excerpt: Mobile professionals who need both a PDA and a cell phone in a single device should consider the Palm Tungsten W ($549 list), a tri-band GSM/GPRS world phone that is relatively rugged, has an integrated keyboard, and offers an SD expansion slot. It has outstanding battery life (10 hours talk time, 240 hours standby time), six-party conference calling capability, and an impressive bundle of portable-office, communications, and e-mail software.

  • Excerpt: A phone-plus-PDA combo with a high-resolution display intended for business users. This is not a true smartphone: it is a wireless data device first and a mobile second. Phone capability requires the use of a headset, although there are plans for an OEM cover accessory that will let users put the unit up to their head like a conventional handset.

  • Conclusion: As a possible alternative to more expensive Pocket PC mobile phones, the Palm Tungsten W certainly does what it’s meant to. The Palm Tungsten W seems to be a reasonable PDA and mobile phone hybrid. While its specifications are not the most up to date, there is still enough power provided to do most ofl the tasks you normally run on a PDA.

Expert Review

  • Summary: Al met al smaakt de kennismaking met deze nieuwe Palm naar meer. Het combineren van een PDA met een GSM-telefoon leek me altijd al handig en nu kan ik zeggen dat het een verademing is te bellen en tegelijkertijd een aantekening of afspraak te maken, zonder een GSM-toestel met je schouder vast te klemmen.
  • Pros: Combinatie van PDA en GSM, Lange standby-tijd, Toetsenbord is handig voor nieuwe gebruikers
  • Cons: Geen Bluetooth, SD-slot zit aan de zijkant, Iets ouder OS: PalmOS 4.1.1 in plaats van PalmOS 5, Graffiti ontbreekt
