Palm has released the Tungsten|T2, with 32MB of RAM, compact slider design, and integrated Bluetooth. A better display, Palm OS 5.2.1 and Graffiti2 input are also included.
The Palm Tungsten|T2 is the sequel to the Tungsten|T handheld.
People have been watching for the Tungsten|T2 for the last few weeks now, with a Tungsten|T3 rumored to be almost available also. The T|3 is more impressive and allows a virtual graffiti area like the Sony Cli? handhelds and a nice landscape mode allowing for sideways operation.
The T|2 pricetag is US$399.
As an aside, if you haven’t used a Bluetooth-enabled PDA with a mobile phone, you may want to consider it. Using a web browser and IMAP email client on my Tungsten|T and the GPRS connection without cables is a good way to feel like you’re living in the not-too-distant future.
Also neat is the ability to dial phone numbers from the Palm addressbook via Bluetooth.
Buy the Tungsten T|2, or wait for the T|3? That’s the question on the minds of Palm users. As a current Tungsten|T owner, I will be waiting for the T|3, or the Cli? PEG-UX50.
A review is now available on Palm Infocenter.
