New Palms cheaper than expected

$99 color and $299 WiFi models debut

Website security in corporate America

Palm added new models to its Tungsten and Zire lines today, while kissing goodbye to the brand names it launched three years ago. It'll keep the T and Z identifiers, however, and the Treo and LifeDrive names will continue.

The T series gains a Wi-Fi capable model in the T|X. This Palm shares the same 320x480 resolution screen as its predecessors, 128MB of built-in flash memory, and an Xscale processor clocked at 312Mhz. That's slower than the well-loved T3, the best Palm of recent vintage, but in line with last year's T5.

The specifications leaked last month - but the price points are lower than expected. The T|X comes in at $299, while the low-end color model keeps the $99 price point. The new Z22 is a 3.4oz color model which replaces the monochrome Zire 21. The Z22 has more memory than the established - and slightly heavier - color Zire 31, which continues to be differentiated by an SD expansion slot. Palm continues to offer the Zire 31 at $129.®
