String of PalmSource announcements during the COMDEX Las Vegas 2003
PalmSource disclosed its new software store, Srint association and the Palm Powered MobileWorld brand during the exhibition.

The Palm Powered MobileWorld program connects mobile operators, infrastructure providers and software developers in a wireless ecosystem that capitalizes on the growing smartphone market.

The Palm Powered MobileWorld program consists of two key elements. The first element of the Palm Powered MobileWorld program is designed to make Palm OS the most service-ready platform for smart mobile devices by providing leading mobile operators the opportunity to collaborate with PalmSource to integrate their feedback and requirements into the Palm OS platform development efforts. The second element enables leading mobile operators to work closely with PalmSource to create a select catalog of software titles for over-the-air (OTA) delivery to Palm Powered(TM) smartphones. This MobileWorld catalog will draw from over 20,000 Palm OS software titles tailored to the consumer and enterprise markets, giving mobile operators the opportunity to increase average revenue and average margin per user by selling Palm Powered smart mobile devices with a MobileWorld catalog of software applications

Palm Powered MobileWorld provides the 275,000-strong Palm OS developer community technical support and marketing resources to build and promote wireless applications through the new PalmSource software store, announced separately today. Under this program, PalmSource will test software applications for ease of over-the-air download from the new software store to Palm Powered smart mobile devices. Palm Powered MobileWorld offers Palm OS developers an additional revenue stream and increased exposure for their wireless applications to mobile operators worldwide.

Palm Powered MobileWorld also offers mobile infrastructure partners additional distribution channels into the wireless market. Infrastructure providers that are charter members of the Palm Powered MobileWorld program include:

  • PalmGear, powering the new PalmSource software store;
  • Good Technology, providing standards-based enterprise systems for wireless messaging and information access;
  • Mobilitec, providing the infrastructure for the delivery of mobile applications and services;
  • Pinpoint, providing the infrastructure provisioning and delivery of wireless Palm OS applications;
  • Pumatech, delivering carrier-grade, end-to-end Palm OS synchronization software and services;
  • Research In Motion (RIM), providing the global BlackBerry infrastructure and software for wireless data connectivity;
  • Visto, providing mobile messaging middleware solutions and services for mobile operators, enterprises and mobile workers;
  • WideRay, enabling the delivery of wireless Palm OS applications through beaming stations in operator retail stores.

    PalmSource also announced its new PalmSource software store, powered by PalmGear.

    Users of Palm Powered smartphones and other Internet-enabled handhelds can also access the new PalmSource software store while on-the-go, providing customers the ultimate flexibility to browse, purchase and install select wireless Palm OS software applications onto their devices via over-the-air (OTA) delivery. These select applications have been tested by PalmSource for easy OTA delivery and draw from the more than 20,000 Palm OS titles available today. Pinpoint's provisioning and delivery infrastructure makes Palm OS applications available for OTA delivery to customers in a user-friendly fashion. Whether online or wireless, users gain access to one of the largest selections of software content for Palm Powered smart mobile devices available on the market today.
