PalmSource Day 1: Palm OS 5 Golden Master Coming Late Spring
During his first keynote address at the annual PalmSource conference, David Nagel has just announced that a beta of Palm OS 5 will be released this week. He went on to promise that the Golden Master version would be given to the Palm OS licensees by "late spring".
This is much earlier than expected. Previously, the beta was expected by late spring and the final version wasn't expected to be available until early fall.
Mr. Nagel is the head of PalmSource, the recently created subsidiary of Palm Inc. that is in charge of developing the Palm OS.
No licencees have stepped forward yet and announced dates when they wil have handhelds running this operating system but Mr. Nagel only made the announcement 20 or 30 minutes ago.
