New Palmsource licensee to develop Palm OS based smartphones
PalmSource announced during the COMDEX Las Vegas 2003 that PerComm has licensed the Palm OS platform. Through the agreement, PerComm plans to integrate Palm OS 5 to create new smart mobile devices that operate on wireless networks including ReFLEX, GSM and CDMA.

Combining PerComm's manufacturing and networking expertise with the flexible and powerful Palm OS 5 will enable the development and deployment of Palm Powered smart mobile devices for the enterprise market.

"We believe the power and flexibility of Palm OS 5 will enable our development of powerful smart mobile devices that enhance personal organization and professional productivity," said Edmond K. Fung, president and CEO of PerComm. "We expect that partnering with PalmSource will open up new market opportunities and expand our current product offerings to include feature phones on the GSM network, while encouraging the development of new software applications."

Palm OS provides a platform that enables hardware manufacturers and software developers to rapidly and efficiently create a wide range of powerful, innovative and easy-to-use smart mobile devices and software applications. More than 30 million Palm Powered handhelds and smartphones have been sold to date and Palm OS has attracted a large and loyal following with more than 275,000 developers building applications for Palm Powered smart mobile devices.

More than 20,000 software applications are available for Palm Powered smart mobile devices in a broad range of categories including: Web browsers, email and Internet communications, sales force and field automation, personal productivity, groupware, financial management, multimedia and games. These solutions are designed to increase the value to the end-user by offering customization of Palm Powered smart mobile devices and to help expand the market for our licensee's products and services.
