TJ 35 or Tungsten T3?

Is the T3 worth just an extra $50? I have a gift certificate for the rest?

Appreciate the math. I have a gift certificate for the rest. I really would like to know if there is that much difference in the machines. I always had Sony's. The T3 looks real nice though.

If you want for a device with good Battery Life, Better outlook(Maybe) and Lighter in size, you should go for TJ..
otherwise, TT3 for sure

Is there that much of a difference in battery life? If the TJ 35 has a bigger processor wouldn't that make a difference in battery life. Does anyone know the difference between these two models?

Think twice about the TT3

I was just about to order a T3 last week when I stumbled across a very disconcerting series of posts on the Brighthand Palm Tungsten Forum. It seems the T3 fries memory cards !!!!! You would do well to spend some time on the Tungsten Forum -- you might get the same feeling that I got about the unresponsiveness of Palm, not only with the memory card issue but about other problems in general. It makes me wonder if I really want to buy a product from such a company. That's why I'm here on the Cliesource forums -- I'm looking for an alternative to Palm.

Here's the link to the Brighthand Forum:

I saw that. There is a patch that remedies that as well as extend battery life. Palm support does s..k. That is why I have a SJ30. But I really like the T3 screen. I am able to get it for $339 without tax. Seems like a lot more PDA than the TJ 35 for that price.

By "patch", are you referring to the T3Optimizer? I saw some posts there that say some people think that T3Optimizer might have some effect on the memory card problem, but there's nothing concrete about it. In fact, noone really knows what is causing the problem, whether it affects all brands, all sizes, locked or unlocked SD cards. You can't 'shoot what you can't see.

From where I stand, I feel very unsure about plunking down $339 or more on a product that destroys $100 to $200-plus memory cards and that Palm seems unwilling to stand behind. Without a doubt, it's a gorgeous piece of hardware -- I mean I was THAT close to ordering it -- but it's gotta work properly!! I think I will keep my hard earned money in my pockets for now and continue looking at various Clies.

I've been struggling with some of the same issues. I plan on waiting a month or two and letting things sort out with the T3 and resolving the SD problems. Other than that, I think it's the best fit for my next PDA and a good value. I love the idea of large screen in a small expandable PDA. I think a lot of Sony users have jumped to the T3 for that reason too.

Hey, it's not TJ vs. T3.

It's TJ vs. TE/TT/TT2 and TT3 vs. Zodiac!

Get the T3. With 400MHz speed, 64MB ram, DTG6, built-in bluetooth and great finishing (Nice silver colour casing) it totally beats the TJ down.

the ... Zodiac! :-P


T3 fries only Sandisk cards ... and so do Dell Axim. I think it's more a problem with Sandisk rather than T3.

Performance problem after power off/on is now solved.

Screen edges problem ... well, you can return it if you got one. If you look around, you can find substantial amount of posts about clies not charging out of the box. And if you think you'd trust sony support, you might want to think again.

Is this really a question? Get the T|T3

There are so many advantages of the T|T3 that I can't even count them. I love my T|T3, and I don't regret buying it. It has 64MB RAM, a 375MHz CPU (sure, palmOne says its 400, but it don't feel like it ), a 320x480/480x320 screen, bluetooth, and it's one of the last PDAs to have the "real" PALM symbol on the front .

Oh, and the battery isn't too bad. Mine could last 1-2 days w/o charging (ie. From 8:00am (Monday) to 8:00pm (Tuesday)).
