PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Access has released screenshots of its Access Linux Program (or ALP), a successor to PalmOS based on Linux, with the ability to run legacy PalmOS applications (not to be confused with Palm's own attempt at building a new PalmOS, also based on Linux).

that may be true, but like it or not the iphone (like the ipod before it) have put touch interfaces in the radar of joe average. so in a sense, its become the new baseline that one will compare everything to, even if there where similar devices before it.

hell, if one look at the DAP market, creative had the first devices out. but they where to large compared to the storage they had. i recall one such device that someone in the local area had. it was as large as a cd player, with 1/3 the song capacity or there about.

In USA, maybe. In Europe SonyEricsson UIQ-based smartphones are common even for the average Joe, so touchscreen interface is nothing new here.
