Palm has introduced the second iteration of its professional handheld device, the Tungsten T2.

The new T2 boasts a sharper 320-x-320-pixel TFT screen and more memory (32MB). It is equipped with built-in Bluetooth and voice-recording capabilities. In conjunction with a Bluetooth phone, Tungsten T2 lets users access email and the Internet.

New multimedia-friendly features include MP3, video and photo playback. MP3 functions need an expansion card, which is available separately.

Palm VP product management David Christopher said: "Handheld enthusiasts with a taste for innovation will appreciate the Tungsten T2 for its compactness and built-in Bluetooth technology."

The T2 software bundle includes: RealNetworks' RealOne Mobile Player, Kinoma Player and Producer, and Palm Photos software.

Other improvements include: Better desktop software, with drag-&-drop file conversion; DataViz Documents To Go Professional Edition; and VersaMail 2.5, an email application.

Equipped with a Texas Instruments OMAP1510 processor, the Tungsten T2 runs Palm OS 5.2, with an updated version of Graffitti and on-screen writing features. It costs £329 (including VAT).
