Default PalmOS 5 Died In 2005 - Life Support Removed In 2009

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.precentral.net/palm-ceo-ed-colligan-talks-pre-investors' target='_blank'>http://www.precentral.net/palm-ceo-...s-pre-investors</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"There will be no more PalmOS devices released by Palm (excepting the Centro getting released on other carriers). They're focused on webOS and Windows Mobile."</em></p><p><img alt="?" border="0" src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/hansberry/2005/20050708-palmosdead.jpg" /></p><p>As <a href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/f359/palmos-dead-72258.html">predicted back in 2005</a>, Palm continued to tweak OS 5.x until it was untweakable and they did launch a Windows Mobile line of devices, something they will continue to do for some time. I missed the projection on a new OS. I figured it would be out by 2007 or 2008. It will be 2009 at the earliest. Palm has finally pulled the life support off of the platform, allowing it to peacefully drift of and rest in peace.</p><p>The PreCentral article linked to has additional tidbits from the Palm CEO on the forthcoming Pre device, litigation with Apple and a few other items.</p>
