Industrial devices have traditionally had better screens – they had to be readable in sun and shade alike. So far, this was usually accomplished by using reflective technology…but it looks like Aceeca tries something different by fitting an extremely bright transmissive screen instead:

Next to the Treo 680, the winner is clear:

When it comes to the rx4240, a tie is scored. I personally think that the screen in the PDA32 is from the same maker, but will not comment on this further (:-)):

In the end, the screen of the PDA32 is definitely on par with the competition.

With that, our preliminary review of the PDA32 ends – tune in soon for the final verdict!

    That’s a pretty meagre review! What about speed and (double-capacity) battery life? I heard this PDA performs an automatic RAM backup into NVRAM upon power-off. That’s a feature worth mentioning as it combines the safety of NVRAM with the better write speed of plain RAM. I’m eager to compare it to my T3 for lengthy computations (my TX – with NVFS – is much slower). I also heard ROM upgrading of the PDA32 is as easy as copying the new firmware unto the SD card and rebooting; let’s hope a smaller company like Aceeca is more active at fixing bugs, and also that they have better quality control over their manufacturing process – I’ve had too many Palm units (m500 and Zire) die a sudden death.

    Unless you have been using EXACTLY the same exposure parameters, the comparison is useless. It is useless anyway, as you did not compare the devices in different ambient conditions.

    Try using fixed aperture/exposure time for ALL dark shots and get some bright sunlight comparison shots. That would provide meaningful information.

  3. Hi Luc, Hi bsp,
    thank you all so much for talking back!

    The issue is that the device I have is a very early prototype. So, it imho were unjust to perform these tests on non-final hardware.

    As for the images. BSP, I have sent you an email and would be glad to adjust our reviewing process to make the images more useful!

    All the best
    Tam Hanna
