Palm readies next-gen ‘Web 2.0’ OS

| So let’s talk about the future – and specifically the forthcoming all-new 
| Palm OS, which is codenamed Nova and said to be built around Linux. Colligan 
| calls it “Palm OS” and later “Palm 2.0”, both times his fingers drawing 
| quotation marks in the air as he speaks. Palm 2.0, as in Web 2.0, although he 
| makes it clear that “I’m not coming up with the branding right now – whether 
| it’s Palm OS 2.0 or Next Generation, we’re not coming up with the branding 
| right now. But this is something different to this” he says, pointing to the 
| Centro.

| Well, on the way to that Linux software, Palm hopes to return to increasing 
| sales and return to profitability a couple of ways, said Brown: one, the 
| Centro, is available at 10 carriers now and will be spreading to more 
| carriers globally. That’s important, because the Centro sells for as little 
| as $49, at AT&T, which means Palm has to make up the sales on volume. Her 
| wouldn’t confirm if the Centro will be offered by Verizon Communications’s 
| (VZ) Verizon Wireless unit, as rumored.

| That will change in 2009, according to Palm's vice president of smartphone
| product marketing, Stephane Maes. The company is developing its own modern,
| Linux-based OS, which will replace Palm OS by the end of the year. It will
| have a flexible interface and a very easy development environment, and it
| will focus on integrating personal information, Maes says.


Does ACCESS threaten Windows Mobile? (Video demonstration & interview.)

| This year ACCESS released their first new platform with PalmSource. The 
| platform looks like older Palm OS versions. However, it was developed based 
| on Linux, provides true multitasking, improved graphics and single finger 
| navigation. It has a number of other enhancements as well.   
| Third party applications developed for Palm OS devices work on ACCESS' new 
| platform. So Palm OS customers can migrate to ACCESS without giving up their 
| existing software. Palm OS developers can easily write new applications for 
| ACCESS. Also, most of the existing 30 thousand Palm OS third party software 
| titles can be purchased for use on ACCESS devices.

| "There are certain apps you just can’t build on an iPhone," Miner 
| said. "Apple doesn’t let you do multiprocessing. They don’t let your app run 
| in the background after you switch to another. And they don't let you have 
| interpretive language in your iPhone apps."
