PalmSource Sale Won’t Kill PalmOS

The sale of PalmSource may consummate the marriage of Linux and the Palm OS, but it won’t kill off the operating system that helped create the PDA market. Executives of Japan’s Access said the company’s $324.3 million proposal, announced Friday, would not have an immediate impact on the more than 39 million Palm-powered devices made by Palm and more than 40 other manufacturers, including Japan’s Sony and Kyocera, and South Korea’s Samsung Electronics.
