I think it is still possible that palmOne might face a lawsuit regarding about "loose parts" on the Tungsten T3. Though palmOne has ordered the cessation of Tungsten T3 production, they might not be able to escape any lawsuits regarding about loose parts, though.Powered by Palm OS since March 2002
In November, palmOne officially told all retailers through e-mail (those who were resellerpro members) that the T|T3 was EOL, and they have depleted supplies of it.
As I said in my article in November, "According to the latest newsletter sent to resellers, palmOne has very little stock left and it will be 'out of stock for good'."----------Technology Reporter at www.dailygadget.com
This will be discontinued, the T5 will eventually as well as the many to come after it.
It is entirely probably that the T5 and/or the T|E2 (if the rumors are true) represent the final Tungsten models to come out of P1.
The T3 is the real "Flagship" for PalmOne. It has many wonderful features that came right out and surprised us all. Of course, it also lacked some things we thought it should have. But, nonetheless, it is most impressive. Each time a model like this comes out, it makes us appreciate the innovative design the makers put into it. We play, we think, we dream about the "what if's" for the next model, then we make it known in forums and to PalmOne. They listen and learn too, so we get what we want. Maybe not when we want it, but in time, it comes.
Yes, the T5 wasn't everything we hoped it would be, but it too is a test vehicle for future devices. Who would have thought of making your PDA work as a storage device for additional data you want to drag around and send to this or that computer. How about cables for syncing instead of cradles. This sure makes it easier to have a portable device. And how about that mystery plastic that looks and acts like metal. OK, that one was a bit of a klunker on the Zire, but you get the idea.
Now, take the T3 and T5, marry them with some extra goodies like WiFi & BT, plus upgrades that haven't crossed our minds yet and VOILA, the next device. Hey, OLED is cool. And how about the thing Hawkins is working on. He may be closer than he or we think. I imagine my PDA interacting with me one day in a way similar to that of the HAL9000. Well, maybe not. I definitely would hate to find myself with no life support. Anyway.
Why is the T3 vanishing. For the same reason the cowboy rides off into the sunset. There is always another day and another device on the horizon.

A sales person at Staples did confirm to me that the T3 is no longer obtainable once supplies run out at local stores.
Usually, I can order even some discontinued stuff through the University of Toronto Computer Shop, but they can't get this for me anymore (they had told me that they could as recently as a month ago).
I agree that the T5, although much maligned for what it left out, is not a bad little Palm device in its own right. I wouldn't pay the $600 CDN for it, but luckily I can get it for about $450 CDN though the U of T Computer Shop (gotta love academic pricing). Before I take the plunge, I'm waiting to see what P1 will come out with next.
I managed to pick one up on Ebay luckily enough - so thankfully I didn't have to drop down to a T5 ;-)
palmOne don't care about 'power' palm users anymore...
Too bad P1 won't offer OS upgrades on devices; I'd love to buy a T3 and upgrade the OS to Garnet (I have admitted defeat that Cobalt is forthcoming anytime soon).
They are definitely discontinued... so grab them while you can print that page out from the above link and check out futureshop or even staples (although I don't think they have any more stock since I missed out on their clearance pricing for boxing day... they had an additional 20% off.. so I missed out on getting one for $317.60...)
>>>The AmigaOS is small (tiny, even!) fast, and Internet-ready, yet already has a large library of supported applications, exactly what is needed for the next generation of cell phones and other handheld devices. I have been playing around with Compact Flash to IDE adapters, and have installed the OS (as you can see from the screenshots, the OS plus all the applications and data I was testing took up only 377 megabytes) onto a 512MB compact flash card for a prototype wireless tablet I am developing.
>>>However, as cell phones, PDAs and living room set-top media boxes become more prevalent in the future, there is a chance that the A1 and OS4 could find a profitable niche. I have used PDAs that have similar CPU and RAM capacities as my AmigaOne and they do not provide the same speed and functionality that is already available in OS4. OS4 feels like a full desktop, yet has the resource requirements of a handheld. There is a chance, albeit a small one, that the Amiga might play a small role in this arena.
Hey Nagel! You can acquire this too and have a further excuse for having us wait and wait and wait and wait!
Feh! Looks like, again!, PPC might have the better one:
Thanks, palmOne & PalmSource! Grrr...
Palm One must have an T series device still in design. I hope they release it. The T series is a higher quality than the E series. It would be a shame if they kill off their high end devices.
The same eight Contacts are displayed every time you tap Find More. You can't continue searching in other applications once the eight Contacts are displayed.
What should I do?
The "Find" function is a subsystem of the Palm OS. It is a rudimentary feature of your handheld that performs basic searches. There are third-party search utilities on the market that offer robust features and flexible searching options beyond the basic "Find" function included with the Tungsten T5 handheld (and which do not encounter the issue with displaying only eight Contacts). Search the palmOne Software Connection for third-party handheld search utilities, such as IntelligentFind. http://kb.palmone.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?%20St=902,E=0000000000133350793,K=7072,Sxi=6,useTemplate=Case.tem,CASE=38782
PDAs are dying -- with lots of help from palmOne!
I had to return my T3's to Palm 3 times due to screen scratching.
I say good bye T3...The T5 is no prize either.
Its Treo or nothing...Except I gotta buy JOT to add Graffiti.
