Nearly doubling the industry's current handheld storage maximum, palmOne today introduced the Tungsten(TM) T5 handheld with 256MB of flash memory.(1) The Tungsten T5 gives productivity-minded mobile professionals the ability to carry more data and applications than ever before on a handheld, for an estimated U.S. street price of $399.
The Tungsten T5 handheld's flash memory protects information even if the device loses its charge, and doubles as a portable flash memory drive.(2) With palmOne's highest-resolution 320x480 color screen, Bluetooth(R) wireless technology, and an all-new sleek and slim design, the Tungsten T5 rises above conventional handheld limitations, giving customers the folders and files they need whenever and wherever they need them.
Flash memory, a form of electronic memory, is used for easy and safe information storage. Its low power consumption and light weight make flash memory ideal for mobile devices. In addition, flash memory holds information without a charge or power, just like a memory card saves pictures when not connected to a digital camera. The flash memory in the TungstenT5 handheld will maintain its data, even when the power is exhausted. Simply charge the handheld again and the data is there.
