Access to bring Palm OS applications to Nokia tablets through virtualisation software
ACCESS CO., LTD. will make available a beta version of a Garnet VM software for Nokia N770, N800 and N810 Internet Tablets.

Garnet VM will make it possible for users of the Nokia N770, N800 and N810 to execute off-the-shelf Garnet OS-based applications. Garnet VM is expected to be available by the end of the year free of charge as a download from the ACCESS website.

Garnet VM is a "virtual machine" software application for running Garnet OS-based applications in a Linux environment, and supports over 30,000 software applications, including some of the most popular mobile applications on the market, such as Google Maps, Snappermail, DateBk5 and perennially favorite games like Bejeweled, PacMan and Sudoku.

The Nokia N770, N800 and N810 Internet Tablets are part of the Nokia Nseries range of high performance multimedia computers that deliver unparalleled mobile multimedia experiences.

Running a Linux-based operating system, Nokia Internet Tablets offer easy wireless connections, high resolution display and support for a wide variety of Internet applications, such as Internet calling, instant messaging and email.

"ACCESS is leveraging our work on the ACCESS Linux Platform which includes Garnet VM as one of three runtime environments along with Java and native Linux," said Didier Diaz, senior vice president product strategy management, ACCESS Systems Americas, Inc. "This reinforces the value of Garnet OS-based applications to consumers and creates an all-around win: it will allow Nokia users to access the thousands of great applications running under Garnet OS; it will give our loyal developers a larger installed base of devices; and it will enable ACCESS to fine-tune Garnet VM based on customer feedback."
