PalmSource Considering Laptop Licensee
Recent comments made by David Nagel at the PalmSource European Developer conference, hint at the possibility that the Palm OS may end up in a full size laptop in the not so distant future.
A report on ZDNet UK puts together some of the comments made by Nagel at the conference. He told ZDNet UK that the laptop era is over. "We are in the post PC era now -- PCs have become too complex, partly by design," he said. He said the company is considering bringing in a hardware partner that would produce a Palm OS-based device to rival traditional laptops.
"We think our platform is flexible enough to support this kind of device," he said. "A number of us inside the company are hoping a licensee will show up who wants to make a true notebook."
