More Information About PalmSources Future in Phones

MobileBurn has a report based on a conversation with Albert Chu, the Vice President of Business Development for PalmSource. Palm Addicts is also pointing us to an MS Mobiles interview with Chu.

It seems that PalmSource has interest in Linux based PalmOS for more than just PDAs and smartphones. Your basic mobile phone of the future may look like something with PalmOS, even if the similarty is just on the surface. Apparently there's a difference between Americans and Asians regarding what kind of user interface people like. PalmSource has expertise in user interface design that would apply very well to mobile phones. It's an uphill battle against some pretty significant competition, but you never know!

I read the MSMobiles interview and I don't think that they want to "kill Nokia". In fact, I think they would be rather stupid if that was their goal. Instead, they should try to win Nokia as a licensee of Palm OS -- that would hurt Symbian, but definitely benefit PalmSource!
