PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless After a few months of planning, several weeks of work, and possibly a few kilometres of aimless pacing through the living room, I'm happy to present "Palm: I'm ready to wallow now". This massive article (22,000 words) covers countless aspects of Palm, its devices, its operating system, and the company's importance to the mobile industry. I start with a detailed look at the history of handwriting recognition, after which I move on to the four hardware products I believe are crucial in understanding Palm as a company. Of course, I also dive into Palm OS, covering the kernel, its filesystem (or lack thereof), 'multitasking' capabilities, user experience, and much more. Important Palm OS licensees like Sony and Handspring make an appearance, and I cover the failed attempt at modernising the Palm OS: Palm OS 6 Cobalt. Finally, the conclusion ties it all together. For the first time in OSNews' history, you can also buy this article to support OSNews and make more articles like this possible in the future (don't worry - the regular online version is free, as always!). I suggest you grab a coffee, sit back, and enjoy.

It's not typos - I *just* found out PDFs don't accept # in links, for some reason. I'm currently checking every URL - again - and fixing them. I'll push out an updated version ASAP (I can send out a quick email to everyone who bought the PDF).

My apologies!

The updated version - v1.0.9 - with fixed links has been pushed out. You should be getting an email about it.

Thanks for pointing it out to me, jal_, this was crazy! My heart was racing as soon as I found out a few of the links were mangled ;) .
