I'm planning to buy PDA next week but still can't make up my mind. Is palm t/x better than T5?

Both are fine devices - and the T5 will do most tasks just fine - but the TX is worth the additional $$$ if you want/need the additional bells and whistles.
For what I wanted, the T5
has more than the TX. The T5
has 256M internal memory, the TX 128M. The T5
is faster with a 416MHz processor, the TX runs a 312MHz and both are Intel chips. The T5 does not come with Wi-Fi built in, but an additional card can be purchased as an addon (I'm going to be selling mine back on Ebay). Wi-Fi is built in with the TX. I have yet to see the need to do Wi-Fi on a PDA, but I suppose some people do and this was an issue for some against the T5.
I have the T5 and I bought the TX for my girlfriend. Both are very fine and either would be good choices to run any software. They are both capable and fast. The T5 model has been discontinued and the TX is the follow up model, but other than the abovementioned changes they are essentially the same device (yeah, there are a few other minor differences but this is a short post). :wink2:
Also, neither has a true "onboard keyboard" but both have the same "onscreen keyboard."
