palmOne today announced the handheld, featuring a brighter color screen, flash memory, Bluetooth wireless technology and a more powerful battery. The Tungsten E2 handheld has a new, brighter 320x320 color display, 32MB of non-volatile flash memory (with 26MB actual storage capacity), built-in speaker or stereo headphones, DataViz's Documents To Go software for Word, Excel and PowerPoint compatibility, a 200MHz Intel XScale processor, and a built-in expansion card slot that accepts MMC, SD and SDIO formats. palmOne's Tungsten E2 handheld has an estimated street price of $250 and will be available on April 13. The company also reduced the price of the Zire 31 handheld by $20 to $130 (estimated street price).
"This sleek, stylish device is the perfect handheld to take into the boardroom or the classroom," said Ken Wirt, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for palmOne. "With the versatile Tungsten E2, customers get more of what they want -- Bluetooth, and a brighter, richer color screen that brings calendar, contacts, documents, photos and videos to life. Plus, flash memory to keep important information safe, even when you forget to charge the device."
