The second Tungsten, the Tungsten T, introduced in November 2002 and known during development as the M550, was the first model to use Palm OS 5 on an ARM-architecture processor.

It sets itself apart from other PDAs physically by having a sliding lower portion; the bottom third of the casing can be slid up and down to cover or reveal the touch-sensitive Graffiti writing area.

 At introduction, it was US$499. The Tungsten T was designed by Palm engineers based in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

It has:

  • 16 megabytes of memory,
  • Texas Instruments OMAP (ARM) 144 MHz processor,
  • built-in microphone for voice memos,
  • dedicated voice memo button,
  • vibrating alarms,
  • standard 3.5 mm headphone jack,
  • one front-facing speaker,
  • indicator light
