Palmgear buys Palm Digital Media
I still go to Palm Digital Media using their original PeanutPress URL. That was the name the company was created with, before becoming Palm Digital Media. Ebooks published by Palm Digital Media can be read in a variety of platforms, from Palm OS, Pocket PC and Windows computers to Mac OS X computers.

Now, PalmGear announced the acquisition of PalmSource's subsidiary Palm Digital Media, and will power a new PalmSource online store and license the "PalmGear," "Palm Digital Media" and "Palm Reader" brands.

PalmGear, together with Palm Digital Media, will provide a strong distribution channel for Palm OS software applications and offer Palm Powered consumers increased access to more than 19,000 applications and over 10,000 eBook titles. The acquisition of Palm Digital Media by PalmGear strengthens its position as the industry's leading provider of third-party content for Palm Powered mobile devices, bringing the company's total software application and eBook offerings to nearly 30,000. In addition, PalmGear anticipates that Palm Digital Media's existing relationships with more than 75 publishers, including industry leaders HarperCollins, Penguin Group (USA), Random House, St. Martin's Press, Simon & Schuster and Time Warner Book Group will enable PalmGear to further expand its current product offerings.

Separately, PalmSource has chosen PalmGear to power the PalmSource Web site's new online store exclusively devoted to Palm OS applications. The agreement provides that PalmGear will provide the backend infrastructure, Palm OS software catalog, and customer and technical support to users purchasing software applications via the PalmSource Web site. The strategic alliance with PalmGear builds on PalmSource's commitment to helping its 275,000 Palm OS developers grow their businesses by offering them an additional sales channel for software applications. PalmSource's online store is designed to provide increased exposure for Palm OS developers to successfully promote and market their Palm OS software applications, while enabling PalmGear to broaden its reach to the millions of users of Palm Powered devices. PalmGear also offers marketing resources, such as the Premier Partner and Growth Programs, that help provide Palm OS developers with the necessary tools to build and maintain sustainable businesses.
