PalmOne has unveiled the latest addition to its PDA line-up, the Tungsten E2. As the successor to and the replacement for the popular Tungsten E the Tungsten E2 boasts the same sleek and compact form factor as its older sibling but ups the ante with performance-enhancing features
The handheld has a 320x320, 65,000 color display and is powered by an Intel 200Mhz Xscale processor, running Palm OS Garnet (v5.4). It has 32Mb on onboard non-volatile flash memory and an expansion slot that supports SD, SDIO and MMC cards. Software includes a new version of Documents To Go, for viewing PowerPoint presentations (now compatible with Mac OS X) and reading and editing Word and Excel
The Tungsten E2 has integrated Bluetooth, providing Web browsing and email via a similarly equipped mobile phone. Wi-Fi connectivity is possible, by adding a palmOne Wi-Fi card. The E2 also has a stereo headphone jack and a multi-connector, compatible with all of palmOne's latest power and synchronisation cables, such as the cradle kit, travel chargers and car charger.
New and exciting Brighter Color Display
The new, brighter color display makes it easy to see all you applications...schedule, contacts, and work documents, even outdoors. And with improved color saturation, your photos and video clips come to life in vivid, dazzling color.
Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity
The built-in Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to synchronize with your computer without the restriction of wires. Use your handheld with a Bluetooth phone and the VersaMail email client to send email and text messages, or surf the Web with the Blazer web browser.
Non-volatile Flash Memory
There's loads of space to hold your contacts, calendar, photos, applications, and even your spreadsheets or presentations. The flash memory helps protect the information on your handheld, even when you forget to recharge.
With Documents To Go, you can create and edit Word and Excel documents, and view your PowerPoint files, on the go. And with an easy conversion step, you can even view Acrobat PDF files.
Longer battery Life
New long-life battery has more longevity than the original Tungsten E handheld battery, allowing you to get the most out of your PDA before you have to recharge.
Use you time on the go to stay in touch
Sync your contacts, tasks, calendar, notes and email from Outlook to your handheld. Get organized with day, week, and annual calendar views, and color-coded appointments. Use the VersaMail email client to read email and draft replies out of the office. Then send your responses when you synchronize back at your computer, or wirelessly with a compatible Bluetooth phone.
Hold MP3s, Photos, and Video Clips in you pocket
Insert your memory card into the expansion card slot and use the built-in speaker, or a set of stereo headphones, and the Tungsten E2 handheld becomes a portable MP3 player. You can display digital photos and watch movie clips on the Tungsten E2s incredibly sharp screen.
