New Palm OS Confirmed for CES 2009


A scheduled Businessweek feature broke at midnight about Palm OS, and the subhed confirms that it will be shown at CES. The facts are thin, but they’re below.

  • “the goal is to create products that bridge the gab between Research in Motion’s (RIMM) BlackBerry devices, oriented to work and e-mail, and Apple’s iPhone, oriented to fun.”
  • The article implies that the platform would be capable of acting as an OS for not only smartphones, but gameboy like consoles and e-book readers.
  • Palm believes they can grab 2% of the market; that RIM will dominate the majority of share and the iPhone will have 10%.
  • The OS would also help phones make “smarter use of data about you. For example, your smartphone could send you an e-mail the day before your next business trip, advising you on the weather conditions in your destination city.
