Zire 71 vs Tung E vs Tung T1...all same price... which one to buy?
      #15388 - 09/12/04 03:33 PM

On Overstock.com I can get a Zire 71, Tungsten E, and Tungsten T (not the T3) for virtually the same price, within a few dollars.

Zire 71 has 16MB mem, 144 MHz proc, dig camera
Tungsten E has 32MB mem, 126 MHz proc, speaker, unsure if it has voice record or not
Tungsten T has 16MB mem, 144 MHz proc and voice record

Should I go withthe extra memory with the E, but slightly slower processor? I don't need to play games and I don't really need the dig camera,but the voice recorder would be sorta useful I think... but I need help decide between the three.

Any suggestions?

The Tungsten E does have voice recorder:

I saw that review of the Tungsten E and in one spot it says:

"The E does not have a voice recorder, nor LED or vibrating alerts. If you must have these features, consider the Tungsten T3 instead."

and in another place (lower down) it says:

"Audio: Built in speaker, voice recorder, 3.5mm standard stereo headphone jack. MP3 capable, with RealOne as the included player. Supports alarm sounds."

What's correct?

Any suggestions on which to consider?

You know what, you are right. It does not have a voice recorder. palmOne sent us a pre-release literature and said it had voice recorder. The final product did not include the voice recorder. Somehow my mind got stuck.

Sorry about that and it does not have a voice recorder.

I use a Tungsten T3 as one of my daily PDAs. I love everything about it (Yes, it does have a voice recorder) except the battery life. I have a travel charger that I take with my everywhere and a car charger.

good question! all three are pretty awesome organizers

age-wise the tungsten t is a bit old, but it has a lot of good features. the zire 71 and tungsten E are a bit newer.

Ultimately it depends on your personal prefernces.

I suggest you read the online reviews on this and other sites also perhaps check out all three at a local store.

Also see user reviews on Amazon

good luck
