Tungsten E

Does this book replace my manual?

Now You Know Tungsten E goes beyond the standard documentation to delve into all the things you can do with your handheld. Along the way, it highlights key techniques that are also discussed in the Handbook, but it shouldn't be considered a substitute. See the next page to learn how to get your Tungsten E Handbook.

Flipping through

The top of every left-hand page has a header that shows the section name, followed by an arrow and the chapter number and name. Use the headers to quickly find features you're curious about.

Icons to look for

Icons in the margins help you find the items discussed on the pages. All icons refer to your handheld except for the two shown above: Palm Desktop for Windows (left) and for Macintosh (right).


You'll find useful bits of information in the margins of every page – icons, places to go, tips and techniques, facts, and the occasional personal story.

Learn by doing

Turn the page and you move on to a new topic. Because just about everything here is a tip or a technique, you can bounce around any way you want. Keep your handheld nearby and learn by doing.
