Tungsten E vs. T3
      #16297 - 10/11/04 04:38 PM

I'm having difficulty deciding between the E vs. T3 -- does anyone have advice comparing the pros & cons of these two models?

Well, the T3 does add bluetooth, but it also adds $150 to its name. I would say if you can afford it, go for the t3, or if you can't afford it check out the t2 or original t. I don't think the T|E is worth the price tag. I was going to get one but ended up getting the T|T. Also check out the new T|T5, it is very nice. If you don't need bluetooth though, go for something like the T|E. Look on ebay for pdas, you will find them for a lot cheaper, some are even new. Don't know how much that helped, but I hope a little

It'd be helpful if you provided a wish list...from the numbers, T3 has a faster processor than the T|E (400mhz vs. 126mhz), more memory (about twice of the T|E), larger screen and higher resolution, a universal connector in case you have other accessories. Of course, T|3 adds Bluetooth, as Moyer123 mentioned. If you have a BT cellphone, you can get online to surf the Internet or check email using your phone as a modem. T|3 sells for $150 more list.

The universal connector is my biggest concern.

I appreciate the info.

No contest, go T3 if you have the bucks:

400 MHz vs. 126 MHz CPU
64 MB RAM (54 MB user accessible) vs. 32 MB RAM (28.3 user access)
320x480 screen vs. 320x320
Voice memo, BT, standard connector, cradle vs. not
Metal vs. plastic case

I've had my T3 for over a year and still don't see anything on the market that I'd rather have.

Thanks for your input. I probably could afford the T3... the question is whether I should. The T3 has features I really don't need (BT, for example). I'm just not sure it's worth the extra money for the few extra features I do want.

I'm not going to rush the decision -- my old M130 still works, although the battery seems to drain in no time these days, and I can no longer use graffiti on it (the graffiti section of the screen is too worn).

I don't use the BT or voice memo. I even used JackSprat to remove Voice Memo from Flash, and would pull the BT as well if it didn't mess up HotSycning (been there, done that). Happily, I found it impossible to turn away from 64 MB RAM at 400 MHz.
