there will be no Cobalt...ever....

Also PalmSource will use Linux, or will lose the race. Don't be surprised when you'll see the PalmOne with WindowsMobile!

That is 100%!!!

"Don't be surprised when you'll see the PalmOne with WindowsMobile!"

At that point, what reason would anyone have to buy a P1 device? For the excellent build quality, customer support and the great Bluetooth (you don't need Wi-Fi) capability?

maybe it's just me but I feel a bit deja vu like when I was waiting for Apple's replacement for OS 8/9 and Windoze was kinda ahead almost and then we had one proposed solution from Apple and then that was scrapped, Steve Jobs walked in with the OS remains of NeXT inc. i.e. a nice GUI on Unix and the hey presto! Mac OS X

but it was really the iPod that saved them :)

Palm OS GUI on Linux anyone?

makes sense, sorta, kinda...

Just sounds like a piss up for palmSource staff

Why do they have these conferences ?
Their only customer is palmOne & they are not buying Cobalt...

Just sounds like a three day free piss up for the staff - there's nothing wrong with that I guess... kind of like a late Xmas party.

I guess you never been there. A lot goes down during PalmSource. It is mostly for third party developers and a "reality check" for the PalmSource staff.

My attitude is that who goes to this is a good filter of those who matter in the business. Those who don't make it in some form usually don't matter.

If you're not a dev or press, why should it matter? There are websites (hey, like this one!) to report about it. Some people have other (sometimes better) things to do...

Oddly, Samsung is set to be the 1st manufacturer to use Cobolt. with Sony gone - maybe Samsung will step things up and take Sonys place as the 'big innovator' for the platform - but on the phone side (which is where things are *mostly* going anyways). They can be to Palm OS phones what sony was to PDAs and give palmOne the kick-in-the ass is clearly has needed ever since Sony exited the market and p1 starting thinking that it could reap huge margins on over priced drek like the T5 (where they not only did not innovate - they 'counter-innovated' and rolled back half of the features they had previously added to the Tungsten line. Anyway - with the treo being such a carrier darling - perhaps Samsung will now get more interest for its phones. Previously they had been pumping out a few models each year for the last few years - but only 1/3 of these ever saw market because if the carriers don't want it, then Samsung doesn't manufacture it - thus all of those models that just seemed to die at the prototype phase. I really wish they'd amp up their Palm OS 5 device development. If nothing else p1 has shown that there is a big market for Palm OS phones. I am very curious to see their Cobolt model.
