Product: Sony Clie PEG-TJ35 and TJ25 Price: TJ35 is priced at $2,180, TJ25 is $1,780 Pros: Affordable with fairly good specifications for entry-level models Cons: Slightly bulky PDA vendors are pumping out the new models in the build-up to Christmas. Palm has released three new Tungstens (more on them next week), but it is only selling two of the three in Hong Kong. In response, Sony pushed out a couple of affordable entry-level units to compete with the new Palms. The Sony Clie PEG-TJ35/H runs Palm OS 5.2 and has two handwriting recognition applications - Graffiti 2 and Decuma Input. Sony has packed the new Clies with software to sweeten the package. Picsel Viewer allows users to view PC files on the go, including all Microsoft formats. For MP3 playback, a program called AeroPlayer is included to play back audio files stored on Memory Stick. Instead of Documents to Go, which is regarded by many as the standard for opening PC files, Sony includes the Picsel Viewer for opening text, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, jpeg, GIF, and HTML files. Both the TJ35 and TJ25 have TFT colour displays and take Memory Stick Pro cards. The TJ35/H comes with 32 megabytes of Ram, 16MB of Rom main memory and a built-in memory stick slot. The cheaper TJ25 has 16MB of Ram and 8MB of Rom as well as a slot for memory sticks. Both weigh 149 grams each.
