The Tungsten series, first introduced in Fall of 2002 with the Tungsten T, was part of Palm, Inc.'s move away from arcane model numbers, Palm OS 4, and aging Motorola processors. While the Zire was the same old PDA in a white plastic case, the Tungsten T was the first to run Palm OS 5, bringing the Palm line more up to date to compete with increasingly popular and powerful Sony Clie and Windows Mobile competitors. Since then, the Tungsten line has been Palm's "prosumer" line, aimed at business users and hobbyists wanting a higher performance Palm PDA.
All of the Tungsten PDAs have a few attributes in common, like a:
- 65,536 color LCD touch screen with a minimum 320 x 320 pixel resolution
- metal or metal-toned enclosure
- flip cover to protect the screen
- Secure Digital (SD) card slot with SDIO for memory cards and accessories
All models except the Tungsten C, W, and E have Bluetooth. The Tungsten C has Wi-Fi and it is optional on the E2, T3, and T5 via the Palm Wi-Fi Card placed in their SD card slot).
All Tungstens, with the exception of the Tungsten W, run under Palm OS 5 "Garnet" on an ARM processor and have non-user-replaceable lithium-ion batteries. Some users replace battery packs with third-party units. The T3, for example, is shipped with a 900 mAh capacity battery but third-party 1100 mAh or 1150 mAh LI-poly batteries of the same physical dimensions are available. Tungsten models use a five-way navigator pad, in the shape of a rounded rectangle, circle, or oval and have four buttons for built-in applications.
Palm Universal Connector was used by the Tungsten T, Tungsten T2, Tungsten T3, Tungsten C, Tungsten W, for cradles and accessories. The Tungsten E used a mini-USB connection. The Tungsten T5, Tungsten E2 and TX used an Athena Connector also known as the multi-connector.
All Tungsten handhelds include Dataviz's Documents To Go office suite and some version of Kinoma Player, with the exception of the Tungsten W.
Tungsten handhelds have never had a built-in camera.
Tungsten handhelds cost between US$199 and $399.

Famous quotes containing the word details:
“Working women today are trying to achieve in the work world what men have achieved all alongbut men have always had the help of a woman at home who took care of all the other details of living! Today the working woman is also that woman at home, and without support services in the workplace and a respect for the work women do within and outside the home, the attempt to do both is taking its tollon women, on men, and on our children.”
—Jeanne Elium (20th century)
“Then he told the news media
the strange details of his death
and they hammered him up in the marketplace
and sold him and sold him and sold him.
My death the same.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Patience is a most necessary qualification for business; many a man would rather you heard his story than granted his request. One must seem to hear the unreasonable demands of the petulant, unmoved, and the tedious details of the dull, untired. That is the least price that a man must pay for a high station.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
