No more Palm OS

No more Palm OS
If you have recently wondered whether Palm will release any new devices, running Palm OS, then here is your answer – Palm will no longer release any new devices, running Palm OS…

"We will transition to WebOS as our core operating system and will continue to support Windows Mobile products for the enterprise market." This was announced yesterday by Ed Colligan, Palm CEO. Not only that, but he also said that Palm wants to focus on “fewer really innovative breakthrough products” in order to innovate better. If this turns out to be true, it means that in the future we’ll see more technology-advanced and user-friendly devices like the Pre itself, which seems to be the first phone to take advantage of Palm’s new policy.

Is this a surprise? Why the hell would they release a sweet brand-new OS, and then continue running their old one?

i agree... that would by like microsoft still selling windows 2000 for computers or licenses for windows mobile 2003. Besides the old Palm OS was like 10 years old anyways, and Web OS looks awesome.

I think it is more like Apple giving up on Mac and going with Windows. But who didn't see it coming? Palm has had suck a** support for Palm for years. It has been obvious to the loyal fanbase that Palm was giving up Palm. Which is why I dumped my Treo for a HTC Touch Pro the day it was released.

Now maybe they should pay us for having used it for so long and suffering

People deserve wealthy life and home loans or just small business loan will make it better. Just because freedom is grounded on money.
