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'.

My first hand held was a palm device, I do not want the last one to be a palm. Right now I have an unlocked treo 650 and I love it. It does everything I need it to. I play MP3, watch movies and get my Blackberry emails using Blackberry connect and let me not forget google maps. I have it setup to give a different ring for each contact that calls me along with there picture. How can I forget I can even stream video and music on it. Just have not figured out flash.

The point is most people I know would buy a new treo with Garnet but they just need to price it right to stay in the game until there new OS comes out, be it from internal or from access.

I am hoping that access will deliver there version on target which is said to be first quarter of 2008.

Palm just need to put together a device that is able to do real corporate email, be touch screen, good battery , easy to use, expandable, and they will sell like crazy to the people who spends the money.
