PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A Fortune Magazine article looks at hand-held computing's most beleaguered major player and wonders whether it wouldn't be better off hitching its wagon to Google's coat-tails and adopting Android. After shunting aside its own, old-and-creaky OS in favor of Microsoft's it's been hanging its hopes on a long-awaited new Linux-based OS. Android may be Palm's best bet to avoid stemming its inexorable slide into irrelevance.

Well why not Access Linux Platform then? It already has Palm emulation built into it's middleware and it's api conforms to the LiMo specification. And that allows native coding as opposed the running apps on a jvm in case of the Android.

I wonder if these financial magazines have any understanding of technology other than the relative stock market positions of the respective companies and the latest buzzwords accompanying them.
