Rumor: Tungsten T5 Spotted in Retail Database
UPDATED According to new information in the PalmInfocenter Forums, the rumored palmOne Tungsten T5 has been spotted in a major retail store's database. While the listing does not provide much new information, it confirms the the upcoming model name.
According to the post in the forums, there is a listing for the palmOne Tungsten T5 in the inventory system with a SKU of 584372 and a Palm part #1035NA. The listing also shows new accessories including a T5 Travel Charger (SKU 583850) for $29.99 and a Tungsten T5 hard case (SKU 583845) for $39.99 as well as a soft leather case and a desktop charger.
The last report on the next Tungsten indicated it would skip a numeral and be named the Tungsten T5. Previously, there was speculation that the next Tungsten will have the non slider design and large 320x480 screen. It may be one of the first devices to run Palm OS Cobalt. It will also include a higher capacity battery and will make use of the more advanced power management features found in the Intel PXA270 series processors for better battery life. There was also speculation that it would include both Bluetooth and WiFi wireless.
A mention of the Tungsten T5 and Treo 650 has been spotted on the palmOne online store. The product description at the top of the page for the Bluetooth GPS Navigator kit, lists the Tungsten T5 and Treo 650 as compatible with the accessory. A screen capture of the listing can be found here.
