Palm Unveils Tungsten T

by Jeff Carlson

Palm Unveils Tungsten T -- Palm, Inc. improved the top of its line of handhelds today by releasing the Palm Tungsten T, a color organizer that adds multimedia capabilities and the new Palm OS 5 to the company's lineup. The $500 Tungsten T includes built-in Bluetooth wireless networking, 16 MB of memory, a high-resolution (320 pixels square, double that of previous Palm-branded handhelds) color screen capable of displaying 65,000 colors, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a button for recording voice memos. Most striking, however, is the Tungsten T's compact form factor: the bottom section of the device slides down to reveal the Graffiti area. It measures 4 inches (10.16 cm) tall when closed, or 4.8 inches (12.19 cm) when open, is 0.6 inches (1.52 cm) thick, and weighs 5.6 ounces (158.8 grams). The unit is powered by a built-in lithium-polymer battery, and in a departure for Palm, runs on the Texas Instruments 144 MHz OMAP 1510 ARM-based processor. As with most high-end Palm handhelds, the Tungsten T also includes an infrared port and an expansion slot for Secure Digital/MultiMedia Card media. [JLC]
