[News] M2M and Palm Rightly Choose Linux

Hash: SHA1

| M2M Solution announced a security gateway reference design based on the Texas 
| Instruments (TI) OMAP3503 system-on-chip (SoC). The Homebox runs Linux,

Why Pre is the right move for Palm

,----[ Quote ]
| Foleo, a Linux-based Netbook that perhaps arrived ahead of its time. When it 
| was introduced in mid-2007, reactions were mixed. It was one of the first 
| devices from a reputable and established company to fill the gap between 
| smartphones and laptops, but critics weren't receptive to its $500 price tag 
| and lack of compatibility with third-party software.    
| But Palm was also quietly tuning a version of Linux for its next-gen 
| handsets. Last week at CES, Palm announced a new operating system, called Web 
| OS, and the first device to run it, the Pre. It also announced an application 
| store, called Pre Catalog. And that's when things got very interesting: the 
| Pre blew everyone away.     



Objects Of Desire #1 - Palm Pre smartphone

| There, I've confessed, and I'm feeling better already. And the current object
| of my unfathomable desire? The Palm Pre smartphone, unveiled last week at the
| Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.


2009: Year of the Linux Handheld?

,----[ Quote ]
| A common inside joke on Slashdot is the "Year of the Linux Desktop", a
| revelation about each upcoming year being the mythical time when Linux will
| obtain wide-scale adoption on desktop PCs. Although the number of PCs running
| Linux has increased each year, a new emergent trend is that Linux is becoming
| a popular on more consumer handheld devices.


Palm shows off 'Centro' smart phone

,----[ Quote ]
| Gearlog called the Centro "Treo 800" and "Gandolf," both names that have come
| up before among the Palm enthusiasts. It's also not clear if Centro will run
| Garnet, the decaying version of Palm OS, or a newer Linux-based version from
| Access or Palm. No further details were forthcoming from Palm, but the
| devices shown at the Sprint event were slated for this fall.    

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
