PalmSource Licenses Palm OS to HuneTec
PalmSource today announced that Korean wireless communication devices manufacturer HuneTec has licensed Palm OS. HuneTec will integrate the Palm OS platform with the powerful communications features of the wireless ReFLEX® network provided by WebLink Wireless to create a new class of enterprise ready 2way messaging devices.
ReFLEX 25 technology offers exceptional coverage, higher signal strength and in-building penetration, providing enterprises with "always on" access to important emails and company information. The paging and email capabilities provided by the ReFLEX network will broaden Palm OS' support of wireless network standards, which currently include Bluetooth, 802.11, GSM/GPRS and CDMA/1X RTT networks.
"By combining the powerful ReFLEX technology and the outstanding coverage and reach of the ReFLEX networks with HuneTec's ability to create innovative Palm Powered(TM) devices, customers will benefit from a whole new generation of wireless mobility solutions," said David Nagel, president and chief executive officer of PalmSource Inc.
"When Motorola opened the licensing for the ReFLEX protocol, it created opportunities for many manufacturers to develop innovative 2way wireless data devices. Now with Palm OS, we have the most popular and flexible platform that will exceed even the most demanding customer needs," said Young-Han Youn, president and chief executive officer of HuneTec.
WebLink Wireless, a privately held company, owns and operates a state of the art nationwide ReFLEX network that supports over a million customers. The network has the largest high-powered terrestrial footprint in the United States, with roaming partners in Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The Dallas-based company provides wireless 2way and 1way paging and wireless email, GPS locationing and machine communications services and devices. WebLink Wireless is a 1way and 2way wireless data network provider for many of the largest telecommunication companies in the U.S. that source virtual network services and resell under their own brand names.
