The New York Times > Technology > Maker of Palm Software to Unveil Operating System for Smart Phones

The New York Times > Technology > Maker of Palm Software to Unveil Operating System for Smart Phones "... PalmSource wants its operating system to be the brains behind a variety of smart phones, not only Treos. It is planning to add features like the popular BlackBerry e-mail software created by Research In Motion; new Java technology for downloading games; a new browser that will make it easier to view Web sites on a mobile phone screen; and the ability to connect to several kinds of wireless networks, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Wi-Max.
PalmSource said its software would soon be available in 11 smart phones, but it would not identify the manufacturers.
Analysts say that about 70 percent of all smart phones sold are powered by an operating system from Symbian, which is owned by several major cellphone makers. And Microsoft is making a big push into the market with its own software."
