- PalmOS 5 devices (currently the latest version) will still be released later this year
- Devices based on the Linux kernel should be released by the end of the year.
- Palm will not license the OS to other manufacturers
- It is highly likely that the new OS will use Opera as its default browser, given the recent agreement between Palm and Opera.
Looks like Palm is moving in the right direction. I am looking forward to a new OS for my future Treo (or whatever it will be called). The new Jeff Hawkins device (to be announced in May) may also use this new Palm Linux OS.
