A model "T4" did not exist, probably because the four applicable in some Asian countries as unlucky number (see here). To the T - series include business handhelds with lots of memory and a fast processor and Bluetooth for interaction with mobile phones in particular. Therefore, a dialer and SMS application is usually included. The C- series is directed at business users who use the Organizer on the corporate network or public hotspots: Wi-Fi is built-in and an e -mail client, an HTML browser and a VPN client are already integrated into the operating system.


The E- Series is the entry-level business handhelds. In comparison to the entry-level handhelds Zire there is no camera, but a long memory and a high-resolution display ( the Tungsten E has been around since 2003, and in 2004 came the Zire 72 out who has even improved capabilities compared to the Tungsten E). With the Palm Tungsten W is trying to use a smartphone for the first time. A further development of the series is probably not to be expected since the company Palm Handspring bought up and their Treo smartphone series evolved (Treo 650 and following).
