I originally purchased this brand and model because it was capable of running a particuler program that I use as a service tech working on hvac. But once I receieved it, I found a long list of other uses. I was able to upload a rather long contacts list, with even more information than my cell phone was capable of holding, as well as having a very useful calculator. The battery life had a reputation as being able to hold a good charge, and believe me, the reputation is valid! It has software which you puload onto your computer, so that you can sync your information on both your computer as well as on the Tungsten, about as easily as it can be.
Now I will say that the only disappointment I have had in it is that it will only take a 1 mb. SD card. I read that there is one brand that it MIGHT accept, but I have decided that the 1 mb. worked for what I needed, which was to hold pictures of some of the work I had done to show potential customers, so that they could get a better idea of the work I did.
So as far as ease of use, I would give teh Tungsten a solid 5. Input and upload ease of use, again a solid 5. The speaker on it is not very big, but it is audible enough for sensible use, so when I am listening to my music I can hear it fine (you can also get the earbuds) so again I will go with a 4 1/2 to a 5. Battery life is definately a 5+. So the main drawbacks would be the limit of software updates and the reduced SD card abilities, bringing it down to 4 out of 5 rating.
Would I buy another one? LOL I already have!
Well, the only other pda I had was a Tungsten E, so I give you a comparison between the two. I bought an E2 because the E died all of a sudden.
1.E2 has more battery life.
2.E2's speaker is louder.
3.E2 has the 5way selection ability.
4.E2 takes some time to turn on & off than E.
5.E2 cannot wakeup & show the clock, when center is pressed, like it was in E.
There are some flaws I experienced in E2
1.The find function only shows the first 8 results only.
2.2GB SD cards are unusable without the use of a software like PowerSDHC
3.Ditizier was miscaliberated & was unable to get it caliberated using the builtin one, it was caught in an endless loop.
4.Internal storage space is sometimes not enough to hold all the applications.
5.RescoBackup caused the device to freeze when resetting.
6.Sometimes the 5way navigation selection is a headache.
But overall it was quite a pleasant device. I used it to listen to music, watch pictures, keep lists & databases, browse lighter websites, check wheather & sometimes check emails, read pdfs & text files, as a universal phonebook holding all the telephone numbers used at home, as an infra red remote control, a reminder of events & birthdays, as a clock, a conuntdown timer, a note taker etc...
I bought my Tungston E2 mostly to use mostly to use as an MP3 player since it accepts SD cards. I have a Zire 22 that I realy like, but it doesn't have the ability to incorporate music or audio books. I am still trying to figure out how to use it to meet my needs. In the past I had difficulty when I up graded from a Palm VII to the Zire 22. I lost some info on my computer. I am reluctant to download the software to my computer for the E2 for fear of the same problem, but so far have not figured out how to play music on it without doing so. The unit seems to offer a lot of possibilities that I have not even begun to explore. Mine came with all the software to use it as a Tom Tom GPS which is pretty nice though I don't need this feature.
The screen is a nice size, bright and crystal clesr. I'm looking forward to finding my way around it over time. I also have a metal case that is great protection for the unit.
This is my 4th Tungsten E2. I always buy them used and then I use them up. Though they were created for business and organization, I use mine as an ebook. It is fantastic! I can keep about 30 books--novels or whatever--on the E2 at one time. This means I am never without reading material.
The fact that I can also play games, take notes, or listen to music is just an added advantage! It doesn't need a light, so that makes it better than some ebook readers. Also the smaller size makes it easier for me to hold. My daughter has also started to use an E2 for a reader.
Easy to use, durable and long-lasting. Definitely recommend it!
I'm very happy with the Palm Tungsten E2. This is an upgrade of the Tungsten E I use to have. I find using the calender in my phone very tedious that is why I wanted to stick with a palm pilot. The battery life of this unit is amazing. I don;t have to charge it for week at a time sometime lingers if I don't use the games on it
