Sony CLIE TH55  (72081 Views)

[ Guide Home | Go Back | Detailed Specs | My TH55 Page | Review/Article | Buy from Amazon ]

Released: February 14th 2004
Alias: TH55/U
Rated by: tim_palmzone

Sony has finally released a device with a 320x480 screen that is a standard form-factor, not a clamshell. This new TH55 also has Wi-Fi and a camera built in! It also includes some interesting new PIM software.

The TH55 runs Palm OS 5.2 (see the PalmZone.net Palm OS 5 page for more details) and has a high res+ 320 x 480 65k color screen. It comes with 32 MB of RAM (all of it usable, so they must have separate RAM for the OS to use) and a Memory Stick PRO slot. The processor is the same one that Sony developed for the UX50, which varies its processing speed up to 125 MHz depending on the task at hand.

The device itself is 3" x 4.9" x .53", but the integrated flip cover adds a bit to the thickness. It weighs 5.8 oz plus the weight of the flip cover.

The front of the device has a row of small application buttons, but the navigation controls are on the back of the device. There is a jog dial plus left and right arrows and a back button, but Sony has moved the controls to the top part of the back of the unit. The addition of the extra buttons is nice, but the location seems a bit odd. We'll have to see how users respond to the new location.

There will be some new software included with this device to integrate the various PIM applications together and allow graphic images to be inserted in calendar events, etc. Sony is also including DocsToGo Pro v.6 free when you register your device on their website.

I love this sleek, sexy PDA. The screen is beatiful and its very nice to have a compact, tablet PDA. The battery life is pretty amazing as well. I can go on for days without recharing and I'm very happy with that.
