The Tungsten T5 is a Personal Digital Assistant made by palmOne, Inc. It was the combination of the Tungsten E and Tungsten T3, replacing the standard "Graffiti" area with 320x160 pixels worth of screen. It still retains the shape of the Tungsten E, but is slightly thicker. It is the first Palm PDA to have 320x480 pixels all revealed without a "slider," as used in the Tungsten T3, though other brands have had sliderless HVGA displays for years. It is also the first to have 256 MB of memory (versus 64 MB in the Tungsten T3), 160 MB of it acting as a "USB Flash Drive", and to have 416 MHz of processing power.
While the Tungsten T5 was meant to be a replacement for the Tungsten T3, it is missing many of the T3's popular features including: charge-indicator LED, vibrating alarm, hotsync cradle, and voice memo function. Also, due to the 'flash drive' type storage space in the T5, data backup programs in place at the time of the devices debut are incapable of performing properly, backing up to the inbuilt memory instead of an external memory card.
