Palm today officially launched the Tungsten T2, as anticipated, though we note it's been on sale for a couple of days now from some outlets.
This new version of the existing Tungsten T doubles the memory to 32MB (29.5MB of which are available to the user), adds a superior 320 x 320 transflective colour screen, and upgrades the on-board system software to Palm OS 5.2.1. The T2 also drops the original's gunmetal colour scheme in favour of a lighter, more silvery look. The metal casing is retained, as is the 144MHz OMAP 1510 processor and built-in Bluetooth support.
Palm has extended the PDA's software bundle to include RealOne Player for MP3 playback, and Kinoma Player, which allows users to watch movies on their handhelds. Palm also bundles Kinoma Producer, which converts QuickTime, MPEG and Windows Media movies into its highly-compressed internal format. Palm Photos, a much-improved version of the Tungsten T's original PhotoBase, is bundled too.
