Palm Tungsten W available on AT&T networks by months end
Palm today announced the availability of the Palm(TM) Tungsten(TM) W handheld running on AT&T Wireless' GSM/GPRS network. With carrier activation, the data-centric Tungsten W handheld provides users with a sophisticated combination of wireless email, text messaging, Internet browsing, phone functionality, and business applications on the GSM/GPRS network.

The Tungsten W can be preordered now at The Palm Store ( http://store.palm.com ), as well as at Amazon.com, CDW.com, CompUSA.com, FranklinCovey.com, Insight.com, JandR.com, MicroWarehouse.com, OfficeDepot.com, PCConnection.com and Staples.com. It will be available nationally at select CompUSA, Franklin Covey and additional U.S. retail stores beginning Feb. 28.

Monthly data plans from AT&T Wireless range from $29.99 for 10MB to $99.99 for 100MB. Voice plans, which can be added to any data plan, may be purchased separately and begin at $19.99 per month. In addition, a special 8MB data plan is available for $19.99 when a customer also subscribes to a voice plan. The U.S. suggested retail price for the Palm Tungsten W is $549. In addition to the phone activation service provide by most retailers, InPhonic Inc. will provide the Palm Tungsten Activation Service, a self-service online or phone activation process for the Palm Tungsten W. The Palm Tungsten W handheld will also be sold via Palm and AT&T Wireless enterprise sales channels.

The Tungsten W handheld is the first Palm branded integrated GSM/GPRS wireless handheld, and it has a built-in keyboard for easy data entry; one-handed navigation; dual expansion; and a crisp, high-resolution color screen. It features a powerful battery for 10 hours of talk time, and a Class 10 radio, one of the fastest radios available today for the GSM/GPRS network, the most widely supported wireless technology used by hundreds of operators worldwide.

With AT&T Wireless and the Palm Tungsten W, international roaming capabilities are available in more than 80 countries, enabling global business travelers to stay connected while abroad.

The only problem I see is that this model uses the Palm O 4.1 with a 33MHz Dragonball processor, unlike its oldest brother in the line, the Tungsten T, which uses the new Palm OS % and a TI OMAP processor running at 144MHz.
