I just got a Palm M515, upgraded from my Handspring Visor Prism. But in readnig about Palms latest PDA , the Tungsten TE , at only $200 I’m thinking MAYBE I should buy that one?
Expanding the powerful and stylish Tungsten(TM) family of business handhelds, Palm, Inc. (NASDAQ:PALM) today introduced two models — the Palm(TM) Tungsten T3 handheld, for the most demanding professionals who need a best-in-class color and wireless handheld; and the Palm Tungsten E handheld, for cost-conscious professionals who need premium power and performance.
Both handhelds feature substantial software innovations, including significantly more capable Personal Information Management (PIM) features and productivity software. In a separate announcement today, Palm also introduced the Palm Zire(TM) 21 handheld, designed for first-time consumers and priced at $99 (estimated U.S. street price). (NOTE: Please see today’s related release from Palm, Inc., “Palm Introduces Sequel to Top-selling Zire Handheld.”)
“Skillful integration of distinguished hardware and innovative software is key to a great customer experience, and we’re convinced our new handhelds will please new and experienced Palm handheld customers,” said Ken Wirt, senior vice president and general manager of Palm’s Handheld Business Unit. “What’s more, Palm’s business innovations let us price the new handhelds very competitively.”
The Tungsten T3 handheld is Palm’s first device that supports a high- resolution color screen in landscape, as well as the typical portrait mode. The handheld offers greater input flexibility, streamlined access to key features and optimal viewing in either mode. The screen display is 50 percent larger than on any previous Palm branded device, and the new soft input screen area provides a virtual Graffiti(R) 2 writing area. With faster Bluetooth(TM) setup embedded in the handheld, a wireless communications suite, fast XScale processor, 64MB of RAM (52MB user available), and superior office and multimedia capabilities, the Tungsten T3 handheld offers exceptional performance in a compact design for an estimated U.S. street price of $399.
The Tungsten E handheld features 32MB of RAM (28.3MB user available), a crisp high-resolution color display, updated core applications, multimedia software and expandability through cards or add-on accessories. It retains the classic Tungsten appearance, with its compact, sleek modern form and improved 5-way navigator for one-handed navigation. This handheld gives professionals an upscale handheld with premium features for an estimated U.S. street price of $199.
