The TE2 is coming

TamsPalm was one of the big players in the Tungsten E2 story when it was first announced. Not it is clear that the machine is coming, as PalmOne ads for it were spotted on Engadget.

Basically, there is little new with the E2. It will now have a 200MhZ CPU and will use NVFS as storage area. Another new feature is bluetooth. It will use the new Athena style connector that is already installed on the T5. The housing has not changed, and it looks as if the FCC model was not a fake-I repeat, not a fake.
Now-there is only one thing left to decide on-when will it hit the market. Most Palm OS analysts beleive that it will be the 13 of april, but I have not yet received any kind of information.
Concludingly, I am not sure about how this machine will fare. When you look at it from a Palm Os view, it is a good upgrade to the TE, altough a bit more RAM would have helped out. However, it has to fight PocketPCs with a physically bigger screen and more RAM. A PocketPC can play MP3's when it comes out of the box, the TE2 can't(unless a 128MB card gets bundled).
Lets now await the market's decicion.
