HWZ review: Palm Tungsten W PDA

"Overall we found that while it was certainly able to function as a PDA and mobile phone, there were a few features lacking that you would have probably found on stand alone devices. The display and battery life of the device are both suitable to its needs and will be suitable for most users and situations. However, we would have liked being able to use the device without the earpiece."
