A nice pocket PC, but needs more accessories.

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Sleek design, light weight, crisp display, functional.

Cons:Not enough accessories.

The Bottom Line: Small size PC with Big PC functions. Good for the money.


The Toshiba e310 is a decent pocket PC for the money. However, it is important to research the functions before purchasing.

GOOD: The design is very sleek. It easily fits into my coat pocket and/or back pack. The weight is very light, (my cell phone weighs more) which makes it comfortable to travel with. The display screen is very crisp. I was impressed with the color compared to other brands. The interface is very easy to use, it is just like using your home PC. It comes with pocket windows software, internet explorer, media player, pocket word, pocket excel, as well as the standard windows games. The e310 also has a calender, a daily "to do" list, and contacts list, to help you stay organized. When dates come up for appointments you are reminded with a message that includes audio. There is also a digital recording feature to record messages to yourself. This works ok for short messages, the draw back is the audio files can eat up your memory. There is an infrared feature which allows you to use wireless accessories. The hand writing recognition feature is useful when needing to jot down quick notes. The memory is expandable with SD cards, 32mb, 64mb, or 128mb. I found these to hold enough word files and important notes for me. The docking software that it comes with is easy enough to use. The cradle is a USB connection that you just plug into your home PC to transfer data.

NOT SO GOOD: The main complaint I have about the e310 is the lack of accessories that are made for it. I am a college student, and the main reason for my purchase of a PDA was to take notes in class with. Well after I made the purchase I had a difficult time finding a foldable full size keyboard. There is only one keyboard that is made by pocketop. It is a wireless one that uses infrared, and to make it work you have to download the driver from their website. The only accessories I could find were screen protectors(you defiantly want these), a longer life battery, aftermarket cases, a special adapter that enables you to do "powerpoint" type presentations, and extra memory.
This is a small list compared to palm, sony, and compaq brands.
