I suspect that vibrating component was removed in some of the latest models,
the Tungsten 5 included. With my Tungsten T, this component is present and
the functionality, which has been incorporated into the calendar, is easy to
If the PDA typically 'resides' in your pocket, you will be able to 'feel'
when something urgent arises. Vibration will desist, but return at
decreasing intervals until you dismiss it.
All in all, find out if the PDA which you aim for has that mechanical
component. The built-in Palm PIM will not need any extra configuration to
take advantage of it.
Hope it helps,
