A look at T3, other devices

Palm has released not one, not two, but three new devices today. Forbes takes a long hard look at the Tungsten T3. The T3 has more significant changes, starting with 64 megabytes of onboard memory versus 32 MB in the T2 and 16 MB in the original T. Inside the case, the T3 is powered by a 400-MHz Intel XScale processor. The article also mentions Palm introduces the Tungsten E, a $199 handheld that Palm is positioning as a direct successor to its classic Palm V handheld. And the Zire 21 rounds out the low end of Palm's lineup at $99. It has a greyscale screen, but runs Palm OS 5.2.1 and has four times the memory of the original Zire.

New Palm Tungstens and Zire

<A HREF="">Palm</A> today introduced the Palm Zire 21, the Tungsten E, and the Tungsten T3. We've had each of these devices in-house for a while and will have a more comprehensive report in our 10/7 issue of Computing Unplugged. Here's the scoop on each of the devices:

The Zire 21 has four times the storage capacity of the original Zire handheld with 7.2MB of user available memory, a new 126MHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor and Palm OS 5.2.1. The Zire 21 is still $99 and is still green and black.

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, fast XScale processor, 64MB of RAM (52MB user available), and superior office and multimedia capabilities, the Tungsten T3 handheld offers what the company calls "exceptional" performance in a compact design for an estimated U.S. street price of $399. We've been tinkering heavily with this device and have to say it's pretty darned incredible, with a screen that we have to honestly say is simply gorgeous.

The Tungsten E handheld has 32MB of RAM (28.3MB user available), a crisp high-resolution color 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. This handheld gives professionals an upscale handheld with premium features for an estimated U.S. street price of $199. Amazingly, it's also got the hot display and it's pretty inexpensive.

None of these devices will rock your world, but they're all very impressive and priced substantially less than we'd expected. We congratulate Palm on a very solid product introduction.

Screen whine treatment

Hack&Dev has released a new free <A HREF="">screen whine treatment utility</A> for Palm handhelds. Over time, some Palm models can develop a rather annoying, high-pitched hum when turned on. Most of the time this noise is unnoticeable, but some devices can get quite loud. According to Palm support, this is caused by the transflective TFT display amplifying the vibration of electronic components within the device. Palm claims this is "normal and expected behavior", and does not provide repairs for products exhibiting the buzz. The utility from Hack&Dev is meant for Intel XScale based Palms (Tungsten T3, T5, LifeDrive and Palm TX).
