The Tungsten E2 looks OK from pictures that I have seen. Does anyone know of a good review that I can read. I am tempted to buy but I have yet to read a good detailed review.

MobileTechReview were the first off the mark to post a review. Probably the best and most detailed that I have read.

Don't wait for a review...visit a local electronics store and take one for a spin! You'll be glad you did!

Theres a good list of reviews here:
http://engadget.com/entry/1234000423040039/
I've had one for a few days and like it very much, it seems to have a good battery life and has a lovely screen. Its definitely an "evolutionary" upgrade of the T|E rather than anything revolutionary but I liked the E. I am having some issues with hotsyncing versamail (it crashes hotsync) but am trying to track it down. Bear in mind there may still be a few software incompatibilities but if you stick to the list on palmfocus for software which works with the treo650 you should be ok.

Philippa what's the battery power like? I am also afraid after hearing bad things about the processor TE has this been addressed?

It's hard to give specifics on battery life given I've only had it a few days, but despite a *lot* of playing the battery hasn't dropped below 80% for me. Much better than the T|E.
It is a little slow at times - particularly when first switching on there is a slight lag. Games like Chainz are a little slow but perfectly usable.

Is there any problems with handwriting recognition? I have heard the T5 and the TE2 both experience the same problem.

The graffiti sometimes lags a little with your writing and suddenly catches up.

Very little installed at the moment - only thing I'd be concerned about is uninstall manager. I'm pretty sure I noticed it befoer I'd loaded any new software, because the first thing I did was pair it with my phone and had to enter the pass key. I've heard that graffiti is slow on the T5 too.
I hope I don't sound like I have a downer on the E2, there are slight niggles but its a great little PDA to have in your pocket.

Philippa graffiti is slow on a T5, there is a slight lag. Sometimes it works fine other times the lag appears. I have noticed increased frequency, when the battery is running low. Is this the same with the TE2?

I'm not sure to be honest. I will keep an eye out and see if I can spot a pattern.

We sure did ;) Had it up same time as Mobile Review did too ;)

Graffati is slower than what most are used to but more accurate.

Battery life is wonderful, trust me you will be quite pleased.

Most programs made to work with the Treo 650 will also work fine on the E2 (the T5 has more screen real estate and some programs did need to be updated for it, but not the Treo 650). See Lance's website (www.palmfocus.com) for that software list.

Enjoy your E2.

Antoine I remember your review was a good one. The Mobile Tech Review was up first if I remember rightly I only know that because I read theirs first after I was flipping from site to site after the embargo, both of you did great reviews and as a consequence of MobileTech, Palm Addicts thoughts and Bargain PDA i went out and bought one!!!
