PalmSource to Introduce OS Design for Smart Phones
Posted at September 27, 2004 07:00 PM in Dev Platforms
PalmSource, the maker of the Palm operating system for hand-held devices, plans to announce tomorrow its first operating system designed specifically for smart phones - mobile phones that can run programs more typically found on desktop computers.
The operating system will include more cellphone-related technology as part of PalmSource's new strategy to focus more on phones. For example, Bluetooth wireless technology can already be used with the Palm operating system, but device manufacturers have to do a certain amount of technical work to make it function on a phone; now, Bluetooth is built in.
