hope this nova os can be backward flashed as firmware of older treos. hint! hint!
nick, 16 Dec 2008haha there are stil blunt people who haven't heard of Palm yetand there are still complete failures like yourself with no life to speak of who spend all their time trying to make themselves feel better by bringing those who dont know about every single phone ever made down. well done. how bout simply offering objective or subjective information?
Why not use Android OS + Palm user interface (UI) ???
Much better ...
Its really a good news but will there be any benefits for the old palm users....i like my treo 680 but its battery life is too low and it hangs alot..hope they do something for us old owners too...
looked not too sure about its position in front of android and symbian foundation!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've always liked the Treos. I used to have the 650 and I missed it terribly when I gave it away to my sister. The only thing that I didn't like about it is its lack of pizazz. For me, it has the best calendar integration. Really topnotch. Even its UI is very solid. I have the iphone now, but if Palm could come up with a more interesting interface, I would definitely consider it. I also like its keyboard. I think it has one of the best qwerty keyboards out there. I'm hoping for a bigger screen. At least 3.0, a glass display with capacitive touch, at least 3 megapixel camera with flash and 30fps video recording in vga quality. Good luck Palm, and I wish you the best =)
Can't wait for CES 0, 15 Dec 2008wow palm are coming up with their own OS, thats quite a risk and an even bigger challenge thes... moreUhhh...duhhh... Palm has had their own OS for a while now... thus the "Palm OS" statement. What rock have you been hiding under all this time? (or maybe your post just came out wrong)
This is waaaaay overdue.
The current Palm OS is so dated it looks really embarrassing on the Centro.
The new OS better be good.
Jack of all trades master of none... thats what this will probably be.
Can't wait for CES 0, 15 Dec 2008wow palm are coming up with their own OS, thats quite a risk and an even bigger challenge thes... morethats great that they say they want to make an OS that is both buisness and multimedia centric but thats also what the BB Storm tried to do, and it barely even saw the mark let alone hitting it
Can't wait for CES 0, 15 Dec 2008wow palm are coming up with their own OS, thats quite a risk and an even bigger challenge thes... moreI think the smartfone market will change in 2009 anyway,,the xperia,,android,and now nova will still be early devices in the first quarter..And i mean these devices platforms because of the way xperia has lightened up windows along with spb shell,,android is still early days with more devices on way plus palm have been wanting to bring "Their" own platform into the 21st century...Apple will probably release i-phone 3 which could throw a big spanner in the works if it upgrades to all that is missing and ups the cam/vid it could be the ultimate smartfone.. CES is brilliant and 2009 should bring a new load of hype to the smartfone industry which no one believes until the summer when the devices come available.
wow palm are coming up with their own OS, thats quite a risk and an even bigger challenge these days with all the prominent OS's starting to burn up the weak with Uiq being the first and the economic crysis... i'd say they gotta bring it good and deliver with on all fronts Business and Multimedia which is exactly what they said now thats a good start but with all the Rivals taken shape they should expect a dumpy ride...
Just anther note, i still got a Palm Vx lying around which i got in 2001 its just a palm top, black and white screen however in the box they gave me a report on Palm's os and it states that it owns 43% of the whole mobile OS market... back than there were no such things as Pocket PC phones so Palm went from being on top to starting from scratch... now thats pretty messed up... just another example to add to the list with Uiq, Possibly WinMo as this is what happens when you savoy to far form the consumers interests
Buts good to see Palm fighting back....
maybe. i hope motorola shows up with great stuff at ces because they do need it.
