PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm CEO Ed Colligan has confirmed the new Palm OS won't be finished until the end of 2008. Originally scheduled for release by the end of this year, the operating system's launch date has continued to be pushed back, despite the added attention of the engineers freed up by the scrapping of Foleo last month. The new OS will allow Palm to release a whole range of products, including something similar to the ill-fated Foleo. Development is, apparently, progressing 'as well as possibly could be expected'.

This is getting more ridiculous every day. I remember the days when PalmOS 5 came out. It was said it would be a transitional version, until the development catches up with with ARM.

I simply don't think that PalmOS is fubar. Simply release the native ARM SDK, remove stupid 64KB limits in the databases and there you go, no need for linux (short term). Some of the apps (Blazer f.e.) are already full ARM apps so?

The only reason I can see for linux is, that it supports far more devices thus giving you more choices for components.

You can find Treo 650 booting linux pics on the web, so can somebody tell me what the f--k they intend to be doing the next year??? Common it cannot be that hard (style-tap is a good example).
