    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Extremely versatile
    • Lots of room for applications, plus room to grow with CompactFlash memory cards
    • Compatible with Palm III and IIIx accessories/cradles.
    • Excellent battery management
    • Handy CF-based applications

    Cons

    • Not very end-user friendly
    • No rechargeable battery option
    • CF installation requires exposing the internal hardware

    Conclusion

    While my end experience using this unit wasn't as spectacular as I had hoped, it doesn't detract from this device's usefulness. Given that the Palm is a relatively easy platform to develop for, there's no reason why this device shouldn't be on every Geek's and IT manager's wishlist for Christmas.

    Well, maybe there's one reason. With the introduction of the HandEra 330, several of the downsides of the TRGpro have been fixed. For instance, the CF slot is now in a separate assembly from the IR transceiver, so you don't need to open the unit up to install a card. Furthermore, the HandEra 330 is capable of using a rechargeable battery pack, which would have been nice with the TRGpro.

    The TRGpro is still a very versatile device, and with the introduction of the HandEra 330, the TRGpro's price has been reduced to $250, making it an even more attractive purchase for a department or that special geek you love. I'm certainly going to miss this little guy, as I would've loved to have time to have some "extra-curricular" activity with it... :)

    Priced to move at $250. Get it at Handera's website.
