Palm Debuts Two Tungsten Handhelds

Tungsten T3 Handheld with Breakthrough Screen and Sleek, Affordable Tungsten E Handheld

MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 1 2003 -- Expanding the powerful and stylish Tungsten family of business handhelds, Palm, Inc. today introduced two models -- the Palm 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)

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 2 writing area. With faster Bluetooth setup embedded in the handheld, a wireless communications suite, ultra-fast 400MHz Intel XScale processor, 64MB of RAM (52MB user available), built-in dual expansion 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 an powerful 126MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 311 ARM Processor and 32MB (28.3MB user available) of internal memory. A 16-bit, 320x320 transflective TFT color display that supports more than 65,000 colors, is the same premium transflective TFT screen first introduced in the Tungsten C and Zire 71 handhelds. The Palm expansion slot supports SD, SDIO and MultiMediaCard. It retains the classic Tungsten appearance, with its compact, sleek modern form and improved 5-way navigator for one-handed navigation. This handheld gives healthcare professionals an upscale handheld with premium features for an estimated U.S. street price of $199.
