PalmSource ships Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition
PalmSource has begun shipping the final version of Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition to Palm OS licensees. Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition is the first fully localized operating system based on the ARM-compliant Palm OS 5 platform.

The launch of Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition opens up market opportunities for licensees and developers to broaden their reach into China, the largest handheld market in the Asia-Pacific region outside Japan and the largest single mobile phone market in the world. Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition is a result of extensive development and incorporates enhanced multimedia and wireless features that extend the power, flexibility, and ease of use that has made the Palm OS platform a leader in the handheld and smartphone space. Palm Powered handheld devices have held the number one market share position as measured in units sold in each of the past six annual reports prepared by IDC.

"Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition marks a major milestone in executing our business strategy in China," said David Nagel, chief executive officer and president of PalmSource. "Unlike proprietary systems, the goal of PalmSource's open platform model is to drive rapid innovation and allow Palm OS licensees and developers to bring to market differentiated mobile products that deliver unique user experiences. PalmSource is committed to advancing the Palm Economy in China through licensee partnership, professional training and developer programs."

Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition will enable PalmSource's existing hardware partners, Lenovo and GSL, and future Palm OS licensees to deliver Palm Powered mobile devices for the wireless, educational, and enterprise sectors in China. In addition, Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition will arm Palm OS developers with essential tools to create innovative software applications for Chinese Palm Powered customers, thus accelerating time to market and increasing their competitive advantage. The final version of the Software Developer Kit (SDK) is now available for Palm OS developers via PalmSource's developer website.

Palm OS 5 Simplified Chinese Edition Features:
  • Multimedia: Support for 16-bit color and the most popular screen resolutions: QVGA (240x320), Low density (160x160 & 160x220), and High density (320x320 & 320x480) for rich multimedia applications and enhanced user experience
  • Data Input: Dynamic input area (collapsible graffiti); common Pinyin input method and handwriting customization kit
  • Memory: Up to 128MB of RAM support, plus card storage expandability for advanced enterprise and multimedia-rich applications
  • User interface: Lunar Calendar Date Book integration
