Banks Power PDA Replacement

I remember reading there may be a new display or device in development at Banks.

I just watched my second Tungsten E2 die. I need to get a new one. I would like to know if there is any news or other products people use that replace the T E2. Palm doesn't want to support it and they have stopped selling it to retail chains. I did find it direct from Palm for $199. I don't really want to take the chance this one will only last 6 months.

I've noticed that if I leave my PDA in the truck the high temp can cause the pda to stop working. Once it cools it starts working again. I heard a rumor that Banks is working on a replacement something that will have a larger screen and be designed for use inside a car because they realize the limitations of the Palm. The word is that this new dispaly will be backward compatible so you would be able to use on your current system. No word on when it will arrive though. If I find anything I'll keep you posted

Yeah, this one started doing the error and lockup at standby every time. Then one morning, DOA. Palm no longer supports it and updates don't work with Vx64. Palm lists it for $199 but don't sell it. I bought another one from XDP.

...hmm only issue I've ever had with mine was leaving it in the truck when it was -34C one night....froze the damned battery.! Bought a new one on flea bay and I've been good to go since...been 2.5 yrs now same unit.

But your concerns are gonna be mine one day too...Palm like everyone else...sticks with a platform for only so long. I mean Jeez...try to get support for a 486-100 these days..!! aint happening.

And then I get customers with a 43 yr old Sub Arc Welding Controller (pre-BASIC), wondering if they can still get boards for it....Like HALLO..!!
