PalmSource and Wacom to provide improved mobile interface for Palm OS
Posted on 25-May-2005 23:21 | Tags Filed under: News



PalmSource, Inc., developer of the Palm OS, and WACOM Co. Ltd, have announced Wacom's entry into the Palm OS Ready Program (POSR) to deliver improved mobile interface solutions to Palm OS licensees. Wacom joins existing Palm OS Ready partners ATI, Intel, M-Systems, Motorola, NVIDIA, Samsung Semiconductor, SyChip and Texas Instruments.

By joining the Palm OS Ready Program, Wacom's Penabled pen-based interface technology will be certified to be Palm OS compatible.

Wacom's Penabled technology provides a simple, easy to use, pen-based method of accessing and manipulating information and applications on mobile devices. Its feature set enables new interface functions such as application zooming, flight point feature and digital signature recognition through increased pressure sensitivity, greater input area and more accurate input control.

It also enables the easy manipulation of different applications and the ability to switch smoothly between them. Additionally, as the sensor is embedded behind the display, it ensures the display is more durable, achieves 100% luminous light transmission and eliminates color wash.

The technology is similar to what is currently used on tablet PC computers and the Wacom series of digital image products.
