PalmSource to Announce New OS Names
As the upcoming PalmSource developer conference gets closer, more details are beginning to surface about the companies plans. Recent articles hint that PalmSource will be announcing new names for Palm OS 5 and the next generation OS 6.
In a recent article on CNET, David Nagel has revealed a bit of what PalmSource is planning to announce at the developer conference. Most notable is that PalmSource will continue to developed Palm OS 5 and 6 simultaneously and the two compatible OS's will also be given new names and will be separately branded.
As previously reported, PalmSource plans to continue to develop Palm OS 5. The company plans to make a "phone edition" version of Palm OS 5 aimed at smartphones. The company will target phone centric devices and a future category of less expensive smartphones and feature phones. Nagel feels the maturity of OS 5 will make it ideal for use on mass-market handsets.
PalmSource is expected to talk more about Palm OS 6 and other OS releases at the upcoming PalmSource Developer Conference. The developer and enthusiast gathering will take place February 10-12, 2004 in San Jose, California. PalmInfocenter will be reporting live from the event next week.
