Color Palms in Y2K

C|Net usually the first to break real rumors, is reporting color Palms next year. This is an obvious move after the new Dragonballs were announced. The article states "Although the weight and price issues still exist, Palm is "confident" in the development work being done to reduce those problems." They also let slip that developers are getting Previews of the next OS, which integrates color graphic application programming interfaces (APIs) for the first time.

The OS version that was passed out last night @ PalmSource and supports colour and the new graphics APIs v3.50, not v4 as your article states.

Thanks for the heads up. I just assumed it was 4. I'm not at PalmSource so I didn't know for sure.
Where did you see 3.5?
v3.5 vs. v4

3.5 is what they (Palm employees) have been consistently calling the next release. It's an all-inclusive release of all the features in 3.1/3.2/3.3 (since they aren't inclusive) with some UI improvements, colour, overlay manager, and all the other wonderful things they've announced.
