Packing a 400MHz Intel ARM processor and 64MB of memory and built-in wireless "Wi-Fi" capabilities, the Tungsten C is far and away Palm's most powerful handheld ever.
Running on Palm OS 5.2.1, the Tungsten C easily handles Word, Excel and PowerPoint compatible files and the built-in WiFi(802.11b) connection provides enough speed (approximately 11 megabits/second) for emails to be sent with attachments.
WiFi(802.11b) is an ethernet connection that works via a base station up to 45 metres away. This gives wireless access at home, the office or through the growing number of "hotspots" located at airports, hotels and cafes.
Similar in shape and size to the Tungsten W but minus the external antenna, the Tungsten C measures 12.1 x 7.79 x 1.65 cm and a graffiti board is omitted in the design in favour of a full QWERTY "thumbboard" and a 5 way navigator button for one-handed operation.
The 320x320 transflective display provides vibrant colour and enough real estate to view documents and web pages with clarity
Processing speed and additional memory (having four times the memory of the Tungsten T) make the new Tungsten C a formidable business tool. It joins the GSM/GPRS enabled Tungsten W and the Tungsten Bluetooth enabled T model in the Palm Tungsten range.
The Palm Tungsten C is now available and costs AUS$999 (incl GST). Follow the links below to learn more.
