Palm in more them 30 million devices
PalmSourceannounced the number of Palm Powered devices sold worldwide has surpassed 30 million.

According to their press release the Palm OS is a flexible platform that enables mobile information device manufacturers to efficiently create products that meet diverse customer needs. Palm OS was specifically designed for mobile information devices, for which ease of use, instant access to information, lower power consumption, and wireless capabilities are important design characteristics.

Palm OS enables mobile device manufacturers to develop a variety of products at a wide range of price points ranging from basic PDAs to high-end multi-media and game devices, smartphones, wristwatches and industrial handhelds. At the same time, Palm OS offers users a consistent operating experience and the ability to run a common set of applications on any Palm Powered device. The Palm Powered licensee community currently includes 14 mobile device manufacturers: Aceeca, AlphaSmart, Fossil, Garmin, GSL, Handspring, HuneTec, Kyocera, Lenovo, Palm Solutions Group, Samsung, Sony, Symbol and Tapwave.

The Palm OS platform has attracted a large and loyal following with more than 275,000 developers building applications for Palm Powered mobile devices. The Palm OS developer community has created over 19,000 software applications in a broad range of categories including, Web browsers, email and Internet communications, sales force and field automation, personal productivity, groupware, financial management and games. These solutions are designed to increase the value to the end user by offering customization of Palm Powered devices and help expand the market for our licensee's products and services.

"PalmSource's strategy is designed to drive innovation in the handheld and smartphone markets, while maintaining ease of use," said David Nagel, president and chief executive officer of PalmSource. "We believe users benefit from the advantages of Palm OS because it lets them manage their lives and pursue individual interests, whether making calls, accessing corporate email, listening to music, snapping a picture, or checking the Internet. We believe licensees and developers appreciate having a platform that gives them the flexibility to create unique Palm Powered devices that have features tailored to different types of customers."
