- Good price point. WiFi and Bluetooth enabled.
- Little storage, Less power, Bundled software has bugs
If you are wiling to sacrifice storage space and power for a low price point, then this is the PDA for you.
Price$ 499.00 (AUD)
Palm's new TX sacrifices some of the storage and processing power of its predecessor, the Tungsten T5, in exchange for Wi-Fi and a lower price. The end result: more features for the buck.
Aside from its darker case and slightly brighter screen, the TX looks and feels like the T5. The TX has 128MB of total memory, half that of the T5, and only about 100MB of it is user accessible. Unlike the T5, the TX comes with memory that can store only Palm-supported files and Microsoft Office documents.
In our tests the TX's integrated 802.11b Wi-Fi functioned very well. We connected to our Wi-Fi network, pressed the browser button, and surfed the Web at a reasonable speed, and also sent e-mail using the preinstalled Palm VersaMail 3.1c.
Though the TX allows you to use Bluetooth to send SMS text messages via your mobile phone, we had mixed results with this capability: We successfully sent a text message via an unlocked Palm Treo 650 using T-Mobile, but failed when we tried using a Motorola unit.
We also used the preinstalled Pocket Tunes application for transferring and playing MP3 (but not WMA) files on the TX. When we transferred music from Windows Media Player 10, Pocket Tunes worked seamlessly. However, when we tried to sync Pocket Tunes with Rhapsody Jukebox, we experienced some bugs. The easiest way to transfer music, though, is by using Palm's Quick Install to drag files onto an SD Card.
With the TX, Palm offers Wi-Fi and a lower price in return for reduced power and less storage. For people who don't mind that compromise, the trade-off is worth it.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
