palmOne’s Tungsten T5 – Good or Bad Vibrations?

by Reads (9,575)

palmOne’s Tungsten T5 is confused. While there is no vibrating alarm, it seems there were plans for one at some point. In the sounds help documentation on the T5, it specifically mentions a vibrating alarm. We don’t know why palmOne decided to pull this feature, but it was either last minute or poor proofing of the software.

The funny thing is, the icon that shows when you select silent is a little T5 with vibrations emanating from it. palmOne is already coming under fire for not including WiFi and now the T5 is even conflicted about whether or not it has a voice recorder. It’s official, it does not, no matter what the software says. I imagine a software update will be needed, because in my unit, even with silent selected, the clock program’s alarms were audible.
