Palm Announces New Linux Based Mobile Platform
The platform is described as a “new foundation for Palm.” It will combine aspects of Palm OS Garnet and a Linux core. Palm plans to “evolve” the Palm Developer community to the new platform.
Another key aspect would be the device’s web browsing experience. Colligan said Palm is focusing highly on connected web applications and web services built around mobile devices. He cited the ability to easily backup and restore over the web, delivering software and device updates over the internet and wireless software distribution.
