Rumor: New palmOne Tungsten Image on Amazon
A possible image of a upcoming Tungsten handheld has shown up in a new listing on Amazon.com. New rumors point to a slider-less model, with a 320x480 display and a release as early as next Tuesday.
In a listing for a new unreleased Tungsten series hardcase on amazon, an additional picture shows a unknown handheld, which closely resembles a Tungsten E with a 320x480 display. As likely as this may be a upcoming palmOne handheld, one could even speculate that it could be a Tungsten E successor or a T5, there is no conclusive evidence at this point.
The image does not reveal any specs or details about the handheld. However, last week a number of new palmOne accessories were posted to the J&R retailer's website. A "palmOne Stylus Pen Multi-Pack" was posted, which indicated compatibility with the Tungsten E, Zire 72 and the Tungsten T5.
Also listed on J&R.com's site are 3 other new accessories that indicate the Tungsten | T5 will share the same cable/cradle connector as the upcoming Treo 650. J&R.com lists a palmOne Travel Charger, USB Desktop Cable, and Vehicle Power Adapter that are stated to be "For Palm T5 and Handspring Treo 650".
The Amazon entry lists an availability date of October 5th. This would confirm reports by, the Register, which is claiming the model could come as early as next week.
