New Palm OS-compatible phone arriving in Russia

New Palm OS-compatible phone arriving in Russia
The first smartphone based on the Palm OS-compatible ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP) is scheduled to be released later this month by Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS) in Russia.

Developed by Emblaze Mobile, the Edelweiss phone has brilliant hardware specifications - quadband GSM, triband UTMS, a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, 3.5" 262k 848 x480 pixel capacitive glass touchscreen with haptic feedback, WiFi, Bluetooth, tilt, proximity and light sensors, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, all in a relatively svelte 115 x 56 x 12.3mm package.

There are no signs that the Edelweiss will be released anywhere else in the world, but given that one of its primary competitors - Apple's iPhone - costs $990 (also from MTS), if ALP is any good the Edelweiss should see brisk sales (making the easy assumption that it will cost less).
