Palmone Introduces New Tungsten E2 Handheld

The Tungsten E has proven enormously popular with budget-conscious professionals and consumers alike, helping it achieve a remarkable 17 months of sales-leading statistics, according to The NPD Group. Introduced in October 2003, the Tungsten E represented a new way of thinking about an enterprise-class handheld. Whether for home or in the office, individuals no longer had to sacrifice price for performance or professional features for multimedia. Instead, palmOne designed Tungsten E from the ground up to include cutting-edge features for work and play at an affordable price.

Tungsten E2 Handheld Expanded Features/Benefits

  • View the world on a brighter, richer color display
    The Tungsten E2 handheld has a new, brighter 320×320 color display, making it easy for professionals and consumers to see their schedules, contacts, and work documents — indoors and out. Better color saturation brings photos and video clips to life in rich, dazzling color.
  • Relax with non-volatile, flash memory
    32MB of non-volatile flash memory with 26MB actual storage capacity gives Tungsten E2 handheld users more than enough room to hold their calendars, contacts, applications, photos, spreadsheets and presentations. The Tungsten E2 battery provides longer battery life than the original Tungsten E. And because it’s flash memory, the information on the handheld is protected — even if the battery happens to run out.
  • Connect with Bluetooth enabled wireless devices
    With the Tungsten E2’s built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, users can synchronize the device with their desktops wirelessly. They can even use their Tungsten E2 handheld with a compatible Bluetooth phone to send and receive email, or to check news headlines on the web.
  • Carry MP3 files, digital photos, and video clips in pocket or purse
    The Tungsten E2 becomes a portable MP3 player. Users simply plug in an expansion card loaded with their favorite MP3s and use the built-in speaker or stereo headphones. Photos or video clips of friends and family can be carried across town or around the globe by inserting an SD Card from a digital camera to show off photos on the Tungsten E2’s stunning color display.
  • Productivity on the road
    The Tungsten E2 comes with DataViz’s Documents To Go software, which lets mobile professionals carry important Word, Excel and PowerPoint files so they can be more productive wherever they are. And with a simple conversion step, Acrobat PDF files can be viewed.
  • Powerful performance and expansion options
    The Tungsten E2 handheld comes with a powerful 200MHz Intel XScale processor and 32MB of RAM (26MB user available), providing the room and speed for complex documents or applications. Users can connect their device to palmOne’s Wireless Keyboard to make working on business documents easier. The built-in expansion card slot accepts MultiMediaCard, SD and SDIO formats, for eBooks, games, language translator and more.
