Tungsten E Dissected

An enterprising handheld user took his own Tungsten E under the knife in order to fix a problem with the d-pad. He carefully took his TE apart and posted plenty of intestine pictures and a guide.

The user decided to try to remedy a problem with a malfunctioning down button. He decided to dissect the unit himself and posted a number of pictures documenting the process.

The Tungsten E dissection gallery can be found here. If pictures of PDA guts are your thing, you can also check out some very detailed shots of the Tungsten T3's insides here.

Not as dense as I suspected

I'm a bit surprised, stuff isn't packed in as densly as I expected. They really need more battery life on the colour models, i.e. need to get back to Palm V level of battery life. I've seen lots of people saying it just isn't possible. I would have thought that with a bit more integration (e.g. combine the Flash core with the CPU) that they could make space for a full length battery. It all comes down to cost, and ultimately number of units over which they can amortize costs, but from looking at the guts of this thing I do believe that it would be possible to make more volume available for the battery.

Oh boy...I thought that wasn't possible......

A Palm-Powered Handheld is the bread and butter for many people. Without a Palm-Powered Handheld, your progress is all for naught.
