Tungsten E — what´s its goal?

Do you know, what drives the market? Yes, rumors. Now the object is Tungsten E, a new PDA designed to extend the reach of the pro-oriented Tungsten line down into the low-end of the market. As it was pointed out at the time at The Register, the $199 device´s box was sized to match that of previous Zire releases rather than Tungsten products. However, its part number, P80880US, suggested the model was a member of the Tungsten family, all of whom sport a model number of the form P808xxUS, rather than the Zire´s P807xxUS model code.

In their investigation journalists using CompUSA´s product database. So, let´s see.Palm recently slashed the price of the Tungsten T to just $199, the same price as the E. With the Tungsten T2 — a relatively minor update to the T — retailing for around $399, Palm clearly wants rid of its T stocks before the new model comes in. The CompUSA database also confirms that the top-end Tungsten release is the T3, now priced at $399, suggesting that the T2´s price will come on or before it ships, possibly to $299.

as Palm has extended the consumer Zire family to the high-end with the Zire 71, so it appears to be widening the business-oriented Tungsten line to take in the low end. Palm sells devices in bulk to corporates, so the E may be primarily intended to drive those sales by providing a more simple device that lacks the other family members´ variety of wireless connections.
