palmOne Tungsten E hits 1.5 million unit sales mark
The Tungsten E handheld, made by palmOne and based on Palm OS has sold 1.5 million units worldwide in just 14 months. This model achieved a 21 percent of all U.S. handheld sales in its first year on the market, according to The NPD Group.

Introduced in October 2003, Tungsten E was the first handheld from palmOne to offer a high-resolution color display for less than US$200. The Tungsten E has a fast ARM processor, 32MB of RAM (28.3MB user available), integrated MP3 player, video capabilities, and photo album viewer.

"We knew the handheld market was ripe for a device that offers power and features at an easy-on-the-wallet price," said Ken Wirt, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, for palmOne. "Tungsten E answered that call with professional yet cost-effective features to help users organize their busy lives without skimping on the fun features that make technology such a stimulating part of our world."

PalmOne also cited examples of use of handhelds in different areas, from the healthcare industry to the public sector. Contact lens manufacturer CooperVision, one of the largest contact lens makers in the world, deployed the Tungsten E to 100 sales representatives and managers to help them manage inventory, track CRM data, and perform medical calculations, while visiting eye doctors on-site. CooperVision also installed more than 1,000 customer programs based on the Tungsten E for managing patient data and performing complex prescription calculations. The Newport-Mesa Unified School District in Orange County, Calif., provided 1,000 Tungsten E handhelds and wireless keyboards to sixth- and seventh-grade students to help them in using time-management, word processing and multimedia applications.
