PalmSource has announced details of its annual PalmSource Euro DevCon, scheduled for 28-29 September 2004 in Munich, Germany. This event will provide attendees with 'best practices' for making applications smartphone-ready and reveal revenue opportunities with new Palm Powered Mobile World wireless operator and infrastructure partners in Europe and other geographies. The company invites developers to see PalmSource's new smartphone OS and learn about, and use, the new Palm OS Developer Suite tools for Palm OS Cobalt.
Kicking-off with a keynote by PalmSource president and CEO David Nagel, the conference builds momentum with detailed presentations by partners, licensees and industry-leading mobile operators. Technical sessions will provide an in-depth look at innovations in the Palm OS Cobalt platform and describe revenue-generating opportunities driven by the proliferation of wirelessly enabled smart mobile devices and over-the-air delivery of applications.
Highlights of the PalmSource Euro DevCon 2004 include:
Presentations from senior PalmSource executives, leading wireless operators and other strategic partners covering technical and business trends in the mobile device and smartphone markets.
In-depth sessions on the Palm OS Developer Suite, the latest PalmSource development tools for 68k and ARM native development.
Pre-conference Palm OS Basic Training, a "boot camp" for developers new to Palm OS. The boot camp will take place the afternoon of Monday, 27 September with PalmSource engineers providing an introduction to programming for the Palm OS platform.
A state-of-the-art Hardware Lab, providing developers with "hands-on" access to a complete line of Palm Powered devices to test their applications.
Marketing and publishing sessions will be offered where developers can learn how to successfully market their Palm OS applications and capitalize on high revenue growth opportunities.
The New & Notables Program, providing a vehicle for developers to introduce new Palm OS applications and put this news in front of customers, partners and press.

Applications will be evaluated by categories including: Wireless/Over-the-air; Enterprise/Productivity; Games/Entertainment; and Multimedia. Winners will be announced at the Euro DevCon 2004.
