Palm Announces Palm OS 5.0
Yesterday, Palm announced some of the details of the next version of its operating system in the Palm OS 5 Preview. The new version focuses on improvements in security, multimedia support, and wireless connectivity.
This announcement has been much anticipated and will be carefully scrutinized. Hopefully, the designers have done their homework, and the Palm platform will remain competitive with Windows CE. We certainly believe that it will be easier to create mobile Internet access devices under Palm OS 5 than it has been under Palm OS 3.5 and 4.0.
