We are reposting this article since it is our policy to correct the article instead of simply removing it. According to other references, including Ed Hardy (Brighthand), this story was incorrectly reported at the source.

Since then the source, and Engadget, have removed the story.




A spokesperson for Access told Computer Business Review that a logical end-of-life is expected for the Palm operating system (OS) and that the company anticipates being able to offer an integrated OS solution "sitting on top of a Linux kernel".

The news were revelead by Computer Business Review Online, and the source says came from Access as the company announced the formation of a joint venture with another Japanese group, Oki Electric Industry, which makes telecoms equipment as well as printers. The two have formed Oki Access Technologies to create mobile software combining Access's NetFront Mobile Client Suite (comprising the NetFront browser, a Java Virtual Machine, MMS, and PIN clients) and Oki's voice and video capabilities.

Access would be more interested in the Palmsource Linux assets. Before being acquired by Access, Palmsource bought China MobileSoft, a Chinese company that specialises in Linux for mobile devices.

Since then the future of Palm OS was uncertain. Palm OS 6 was announced but even after months of preparation it never reached the market, while more and more devices based on Palm OS 5 were still being produced.

More recently Palm has announced plans to produce a Windows Mobile based Treo Smartphone.
