PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm has launched a new sibling in its Treo smartphone line today, the Treo 680, using the PalmOS. "For people who are ready to move up to a full-featured mobile phone that includes everything needed to stay organized, Palm today announced the Palm Treo 680 smartphone, a GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band world phone. Customers will find the Treo 680 smartphone easy to use, slim and compact, yet packed full of features beyond its stellar phone capability, such as email, web browsing, messaging, multimedia, calendar, contacts and more." No Wifi though. At the same time, Palm OS died.

Well rest assured that there is PalmOS version of this device in the pipeline:). While PalmSource no longer develops PalmOS, Palm does, for example the NVFS layer, codec manager, etc.

I doubt that there will be a "grand collapse" of the PalmOS platform, maybe Palm wants a smooth transition to Windows Mobile, maybe they still hope for Access to get their act together. Still there are too many applications available with too many loyal consumers, making the "dead of PalmOS" a rather long process.
