Tries to do too much, falls short in most areas

  • Excerpt: "...when I first got my Palm VII and tried to use it as a phone. To be honest it was a failed attempt on Palm’s behalf and it didn’t quite fulfil any of the functions it was supposed to. I have to admit I was a bit worried about this new device, especially since it cost me almost 400 dollars to purchase. Overall I’m quite happy with it, but it could have been even better. Design The Tungsten W is not small or light, but I think we got used to modern ...
  • Pros: a Phone and a PDA in one
  • Cons: not a great PDA or phone

  • Excerpt: "With so much choice in the PDA market, there can be only one reason to even look at the Tungsten W model. This is a PDA with a built in GSM/GPRS functionality. Simply add your SIM card to the device, the device is unlocked so will accept any network. You now have a PDA with phone functionality and abilility to connect to internet or to download emails/data. The model is becoming end of life and there are a number of sites now starting to ...
  • Pros: Built in phone, great battery life, built in keyboard
  • Cons: Older OS, coming to end of life

Tolles PDA aber kein Smartphon Palm Tungsten W

8 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Ich werde kurz sein. Tungsteen W besitzt die volle Funktionalität eines Palm-PDA. Besonders bequem ist die eingebaute Tastatur. Die lange Akku-Leistung ist auch von Vorteil. Das Betriebsystem könnte bisschen "neuer" sein Aber als Handy nutze ich ihn nur im Notfall weil: verliert standig die Verbindung (die Karte sitzt nicht fest genug), sprechen nur mit Headset, einfach zu gross.
  • Pros: Tastatur, Akku, Display
  • Cons: Grösse, Nur mit Headset, Verbindung

Palm continue sur sa lancée

carlconrad, Ciao

  • Summary: A quelques mois de la présentation du Palm Tungsten | T qui a franchement raffraichi la gamme des PDA sous Palm OS (voir mon avis sur le Palm Tungsten | T), voici une nouvelle déclinaison dans la démarche de Palm de se remettre dans la course. A l'instar du Tungsten | T, on retrouve le magnifique écran 320x320 pixels à 65000 couleurs, le bouton de navigation dans cinq directions. On est rapidement séduit par la finesse de l'écran et la douceur des couleurs.
  • Pros: De plus en plus mobile car intégrant un GSM/GPRS
  • Cons: euh ?
