Comments on: Article on Palm's Uncertain OS Roadmap
ComputerWorld was unfortunately unable to elicit a response from Palm Inc. regarding their plans for any additional future Garnet OS devices. Several industry analysts interviewed by ComputerWorld paint different scenarios for the immediate future of the "classic" Palm OS. One thing that all parties agree on, however, is that Palm is sending mixed signals to their customers. Maintaining a lineup consisting of Windows Mobile-powered Treos alongside a number of legacy Garnet devices is already sending mixed signals. Add to that Ed Colligan's recent announcement that points towards a new Linux-based Palm platform in the future and it is no wonder that ComputerWorld concludes that the smartphone OS world is in the midst of tremendous uncertainty and instability.
