3Com's Internet Appliance Division Licenses the Pa

3Com Corporation and Palm, Inc. today announced a licensing agreement to use Palm OSŪ technologies in 3Com's upcoming Internet appliance line. 3Com plans to integrate popular features of the Palm OS software, including the HotSyncŪ data synchronization technology, into 3Com's first Internet appliance which will debut later this year. These new breakthrough products are designed to dramatically simplify the family Internet experience in the home. This announcement confirms the rumors that 3com will release some sort of appliance that utilizes the Palm OS. This conflicts with a previous announcement by 3com that they will use the QNX OS for it's net devices. There could possibly be a fusion of the two in the works.

Any attempt to meld the two would ruin both.
