Palm Heaven

[ #18798 ]

My trusty Palm Vx is on its way to Palm Heaven. The Calendar button has come unstuck and slipped under the cover, and I can't seem to push, prod, nudge, or bang it back to where it belongs.

This probably means its time for a new one. Fry's had a nice looking Clie for $200. The Palm Tungsten T3 and Zire 72. The T3 has a bigger screen, is faster, and has more memory (but an add-on MMC deals with that cheaply.) But, it also eats battery.

I'm leaning towards the 72. Any thoughts?

Loading... please wait.
  • I'm conditionally happy with my T2, which has the same form factor (when closed) as the V, but is thicker. I'd be unconditionally happy had I not had to send it in for repairs (faulty screen), and then back in for repairs when Palm sent back a refurb with a bad battery. The eventual replacement works fine.
  • I just snagged one off of ubid.com and it should be here today. They are kind of pricey even at $400 on ubid (about $500 retail).

    However, the Zire 72 does look nice.
  • The Tungsten E seems to be pretty good value if you don't need bluetooth or wifi.

      - ask (waiting for one with both bluetooth or wifi)
