Palm prepping a linux OS?

According to some recent rumors palm could be preparing a linux OS completely seperate from Access’s ALP. This of course would explain why we haven’t seen any proof that palm is looking into ALP. However the rumors say this has been in the works for “years”. This doesn’t quite seem believable unless this is actually […]

While this is certainly something we all have seen as a possible outcome of the mess they have gotten themselves into, it also begs the question “who would want them”? Of course there is no real answer. They will more then likely […]

Palm OS is no more

It really should come as no suprise, palm os is no more. Offically renamed now to Garnet OS this is actually a move that makes sense. Access owns it, not palm. To continue with that name only spreads confusion as to the actual maker of the OS now. Furthermore, this will allow the hype about […]

WM5 vs Palm OS, Palm OS wins a big blow (to me)

I can’t believe this one, and it hurts me to say it. Palm OS has recently had a driver written (Treo 680) which supports SDHC on it and any device that driver is “transplanted”. WM5 it appears, is without that driver, at least for now. I’ve looked all over and it would appear Microsoft has […]

Access Linux Platform and Palm

So, we all know that palm has made a deal to keep Frankengarnet around “indefinitely” and that they can “modify” it all the want.¬†And we all know where that statement is going I think.

Treo 680 Screwup?

While this is purely speculation and rumor, it certainly would put a damper on things for the GSM folks. The rumor you ask? That 144,000 Treo 680’s were made and shipped WITHOUT the mic hooked up properly… Now rumors like this and as specific as this generally have some kind of merit, although it could […]

Palm OS oh my!

So it appears at least someone has got Palm fever… Over at treocentral they ran this story: http://www.treocentral.com/content/Stories/965-1.htm which appears to promote the notion that palm wants control over palm os again. That has got to be one of the most far fetched ideas I have ever heard. Lets look at the facts. Palm split […]
