The Return of the Quickies
Today's Fridays quickies include a bunch of interesting reviews, including the Tungsten C and the Decuma input system. In addition, a number of new and updated programs have recently been released. Read on for more.
Decuma Latin Review
Joel from ClieSource got his hands on a copy of Decuma Latin 3.0 and published a review. It's probably more of a preview because as of yet, there is no way to purchase the input system yet. Decuma comes installed on the NX73 and NX80 and the new UX series Clies. Joel is now using it as his input system of choice.
Tungsten C Review
Matthew Miller over at PDAGeek, has put together an excellent review of the Tungsten C. The C gets high marks, and goes on to say "Palm was close to making the perfect PDA with the Tungsten C"
Palm OS 5 Software FAQ
Davy Fields has put together a good list of some of the best apps for OS 5.
