Flip to portrait or landscape orientation with the touch of a button, and get a better perspective on work, photos or anything else. The status bar gives you quick access to key functions on the screen, such as the current time and search. The product dimensions of the PalmOne PDA are: 4.76″ height x 2.87″ weight, 0.74 depth and comes in weighing only 6.8oz.

Conclusion

The Palm One Mobile Manager E 4GB HandHeld PDA aims to be the portable extension of your desktop and not its replacement. While you can keep your documents with you and even make changes, you’ll still need a computer for full usability. Nevertheless, you can’t go wrong with a mobile video & picture viewer, mp3 player, email reader, the ability to surf the web and play games as well.
