End of March I sold my TX. And I bought myself a Tungsten C. I will tell you why I made this “downgrade”.
At first sight the TX is the better device: the TC doesn’t have BT, it has a smaller screen, less RAM, only mono sound and the old PIM software. But why did I sell the “better” device? Because of this two main reasons:
- Grafitty: the recognition rate of the TX’s Grafitty field is really bad. Entering more than a handfull of characters is very uncomfortable. The TC has a keyboard which makes writing much more easy.
- stability: The TX was the Palm which needed the most resets ever. Especially VersaMail caused one softreset after another. I had to reset the TC only once since I’ve got it.
This were the reasons which made me sell my TX. Now that I own a TC, I realized some more advantages of this device:
- speed: programms run faster than on the TX. E.g. AvantGo starts up maybe a second faster.
- screen: the display of my TX had a slightly blue touch. The TC’s screen has clear, pure and bright colours.
I don’t miss BT and stereo audio too much. I have a T-Mobile SDA now (more on that soon) which I use for mail, internet and chat on-the-go. And I have an iPod for listening to music.
At all, the TC is not a perfect Palm. But I don’t want my TX back anymore.
Did you ever change to an older Palm?
