Ipaq 1945 vs Tungsten T
      #15167 - 09/06/04 05:03 PM

OK heres an interesting (IMO) comparision.

I think these two organisers are quite similar, and represent excellent mid range products from Palm and PPC categories - they include an excellent mix of price, performance, expansion, software and connectivity capabilities for these two product lines.

Both have reasonably similar processors, performance-wise
Both have bluetooth.
Both have reasonable onboard storage and expansion capabilities.
HP has a removable battery, palm's batt is fixed.. BUT generally the palm's battery is OK (No major probs reported by users).

Reliability.
Here is where things get interesting. Both have an 80 - 90% positive rating, with negative ratings as follows:

Palm T|T Complaints
80% - digitiser failure/intermittent problems causing drift in calibration, possibly of mechanical nature - workarounds, modification/repairs and some software workarounds.
20% - Other issues..

Ipaq 1945 complaints
90% - cracked screens - no solution but replace screen.
10% - synch/resetting issues.

Pricewise the iPaq could be picked for around 199 refurb, 250+ new
while the T|T has been discontinued, but can be picked up refurb for between 120 - 160 or so.

Both machines are quite good, but which would you recommend? More importantly, why?

It's not an easy choice as they're both nice units. Deciding whether you prefer Palm or Pocket PC might be key. The Tungsten T is pretty old now, and the T2 and T3 came out a while ago to replace it. It does have a higher resolution display so can see more on screen compared to the iPAQ. The iPAQ is newer, having just been discontinued and is a sweet, compact unit that's been very popular.

Hi

Thanks for the answer! I have one other rather silly question - I have a SonyEricsson T39.. Would this be compatible with either of these models? I've heard that the T|T isnt compatible with some phones..

Thanks!
Blu

There is a Palm driver for the T39.
