Well, for better or worse, LG has picked up the Palm OS. Palm has been under some stress recently with the exiting of Sony from the handheld (read PalmOS licensee) market last year. I suppose I ought to be more specific here becuase I'm talking about Palm Source, not those guys that make treos and the tungsten line and such.
LG, as the new major Palm OS licensee, is actually helping to create
a future for Palm Source. Also of note is that Palm Source has recently announced their focus shift to a Linux based operating system, which should have all the funcionality and them some of their current iteration of the OS. Competition for mobile devices is good, not just on the manufacturer level, but also on the mobile OS level. I own a Clie TH-55 (Palm OS 5) which I love, but I also recently purchased an Audiovox SMT 5600, which I also love. The capabilities of both platforms, in my experience, are quite impressive.
Anyhow, I suppose my point is that I wanted to offer another point of view than just "the Palm OS has no future, and its too bad that LG picked them up".
Are there others out there with similar opinions? How about others that own multiple mobile devices with different operating systems (e.g., Symbian OS, Palm OS, Windows Mobile, etc.)
