I'm an avid reader of TidBITS, the excellent weekly Macintosh e-zine started by Adam and Tonya Engst eons ago (in Internet time). In fact, TidBITS was the inspiration for founding my own Palm e-zine, the Palm Tipsheet back in 1997 (which was sold in April 2003).
In the latest issue (680) Geoffrey V. Bronner, the webmaster for the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College offers an excellent in-depth review of the Palm Tungsten C.
I really like that Bronner's review includes real field tests of the Tungsten C in a Wi-Fi environment at Dartmouth. When I did the Palm Tipsheet, I always felt writing practical articles like this helped people see how a device or piece of software could help them in a practical way.
Bronner found the Tungsten C a hands down winner over his previous Palm & Wi-Fi solution -- the Xircom Palm Wireless Ethernet Module for the Palm m515. He found that the Tungsten C had much better battery life, a better screen and better reception since it was designed to work with Wi-Fi networks rather than hacked via the modem connection as the Xircom was.
I'm going to email Geoffrey about SnapperMail as an email alternative to VersaMail, especially if SnapperMail manages to add IMAP capabilities before too long.
The best quote comes at the end of the piece:
"The demo unit went back the day after I finished this review, but I've already ordered one of my own. That's the greatest praise I can give."
'Nuff said. ;-)
