4 Star Review  about.com - Dec 2, 2002

This PDA has a lot of firsts for Palm, but comes at a price. Definitely a leap in the right direction for Palm....

3 Star Review   By member reynoea - Aug 11, 2003   

Strengths: Wonderful notepad, easy to sync

Weakness: Slide down not so easy

Slide-down feature is not-so-handy when you keep it in a case. You have to use your fingernail against the screen to pull it down. Overall, very pleased with performance.

5 Star Review   By member tallsalt - Jul 11, 2003   

Strengths: The size. The Screen. The voice recorder. The memory/SD slot. The processor. The 5-way nav button. The metal casing. The solid feel. And it looks cool to boot.

Weakness: The Zire 71 does have a better screen, brighter and more crisp. However as long as they are not right next to eachother, no problems.

I purchased the Tungsten T after my wife stole my new Zire 71 from me. I really didn't care for the camera feature, but she loves it. So, I went with the T because of its size and I have not been disappointed at all. Previously, I owned the Palm IIIc. This is such a better unit. The 5-way nav is very usefull. I installed 2 utility programs, Slidefree and Graffiti Anywhere, and now I no longer need to slide the unit open to have full access to all the functions. The hotsync is so much faster due to the USB connection, as opposed to the former/older serial connection. Programs run faster. The unit is just more responsive in everything it does. Games look better, thus more fun. Readers look better, i.e. easier to read and less eye strain. Even the clock looks better. This is a great Palm.

5 Star Review   By member stingaway - Jun 17, 2003   

Strengths: Bluetooth, Great Screen, Metal casing (Very durable)

Weakness: Slide makes it smaller (a good thing), but when you want to write something and don't have it open it is annoying to have to stop and open it.. Thats more of a pet peeve than a weakness.

This unit is one of the better Palms that I have used. Bluetooth works great with the T-Mobile Sony Ericsson T68i phone, although initially a pain to set up. Use it for all of my email and web. Very durable, very rugged. Great screen. My only complaint is that it doesn't have wireless 802.11b - when I find a unit with both the wireless 802.11 and the Bluetooth, I am there. Of course the SD 802.11b are expected soon, so I may just wait. Great unit overall.
