Title: Palm OS isn't dead, it's just going Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| ASIDE FROM a few Palm Treos, the Palm OS is dying as a credible
| alternative to Windows Mobile and Symbian. However, Cedric Mangaud,
| CEO with French software house, Abaxia, reckons it will be resurrected
| as a version of Linux.
| Abaxia was, of course, founded by ex-Palm employees and Mangaud
| believes we will see the classic Palm GUI sitting on top of a Linux
| based smartphone by next year [2007].

New Palm OS Treo ready for takeoff

,----[ Snippet ]
| A little more than four months after Palm released the Windows
| Mobile-based Treo 700w on Verizon Wireless' EV-DO (Evolution Data
| Optimized) network, it is set to announce a Palm OS version that
| can connect to EV-DO networks, CNET News.com has learned. The
| company on Monday will unveil the new model, which is expected to
| be called the 700p, according to sources familiar with its plans.
