PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm has effectively committed itself to producing handheld devices based on the Palm OS - which it no longer owns - by agreeing to pay USD 44m for a perpetual licence for the source code underlying the Garnet incarnation of the operating system. The move is tantamount to Palm re-acquiring PalmSource.

thanks for the informative reply. That's news to me.

Anyhow, I hope that a linux handheld comes along someday. I mean other than what's already available. I really liked my zire 72. So I guess it's not a terrible thing if Palm continues to milk garnet.

Now if only I could get my hands on a new PDA that isn't a phone...
