No such announcement from Apple there or anywhere. It didn't happen.
It's also doubtful that Apple would buy a company (Palm) that licenses
an operating system from someone else (Access) just to sell hardware
that it doesn't design or make.
If anything, Apple would develop its own OS for a handheld device, as it
did for the iPod.
