Palm updates Tungsten T with more memory

Palm Inc. has launched a new, more multimedia-friendly version of the Tungsten T, the first handheld based on the Palm 5 operating system. The company also announced price cuts on two older models.

The Tungsten T2, available now for an estimated street price of AUD$799, has 32M bytes of RAM, double the memory of the Tungsten T. The T2 also has RealOne software for playing MP3 files (which can be played off a memory card in the device's Secure Digital slot) and a built-in speaker for easy listening. A stereo headphone jack is also still an option. Kinoma Player and Producer, used with a free downloadable QuickTime application, lets you download and view movie trailers. Palm Photos lets you view and organize photos, and perform basic image editing.

The T2's 320-by-320, 65,000-plus color transflective screen is the same as the one used on the recently introduced Zire 71 and Tungsten C. As with the original Tungsten T, you also get integrated Bluetooth technology that lets you use a Bluetooth cell phone to connect to the Internet.

The T2 uses the latest version of the Palm operating system, 5.2.1. This includes Graffiti 2, a handwriting input system that's easier to learn than the original Graffiti. It also supports on-screen writing when the device is collapsed and the Graffiti input area hidden.

The T2's software bundle includes DataViz Inc.'s Documents to Go Professional Edition, which allows you to work with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
