Tungsten T3 vs T5 vs Ipaq rx3115 Which one is better?

by xela--2008 / December 8, 2004 6:47 PM PST

Hi, I am currently looking to buy a new PDA and have come across three models that I am interested in:
Tungsten T3
Tungsten T5
Ipaq rx3115

I intend to use the PDA to listen to music, watch video clips, edit/create/view Microsoft word/excel/powerpoint files and possibly access the internet (not necessary). I can also utilise the voice record function of the T3/Ipaq (but is it good enough quality to record lectures?).

Please post some opinions you may have about which one is the better choice.

The Palm units may record in WAV format so you may get very few minutes of recording. Ask about that. The stock recorder that I tried on another Palm only recorded for as long as you held the button. You may get tired of that and I know of no replacement software recorder that will do better.

Look for reviews on the iPaq rx3115 since the rx1715 made the 10 Worst Gifts ever at http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1735287,00.asp

yeah... umm... I'm leaning more to the Ipaq rx3115, but many reviews seem to favour the T5 and even more, the T3... so I am a bit unsure of which device to get.

Does anyone have the rx3115? Can anyone comment on the camera, voice recorder and the device in general?

Thanks.
