Palm has expanded on its Tungsten family of business handhelds with the introduction of two new models that are debuting at Gitex. While both models promise to deliver premium power and performance, the Tungsten T3 is targeted at lifestyle professionals who want advanced colour and wireless functionality. The more modest Palm Tungsten E is designed for budget-conscious executives.

Both handhelds feature substantial software innovations, including significantly improved Personal Information Management (PIM) features and productivity software, which Palm will be demonstrating at its stand during Gitex.

"Skilful integration of distinguished hardware and innovative software is key to a great customer experience, and we're convinced our new handhelds will impress new and experienced Palm handheld customers," says Stuart Maughan, general manager Palm Europe Ltd, Middle East branch. "What's more, Palm's business innovations let us price the new handhelds very competitively."

The Tungsten T3 handheld, which will be sold in the UAE for an estimated street price of US$445, is Palm's first device to support a high-resolution colour screen in both, landscape and portrait mode. The screen display is 50% larger than on any previous Palm device, and the new input screen area provides a virtual Graffiti 2 writing area. Other features include faster Bluetooth setup embedded in the handheld, a wireless communications suite, fast XScale processor, 64MB of RAM, and other office and multimedia capabilities.

The Tungsten E handheld (US$220) features 32MB of RAM, a crisp high-resolution colour 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.
