    It also includes advanced features such as (from the site)
    Built in ringer
    Exciting red color
    Connects to RJ11 AND RJ11W jacks
    New streamlined handsome design

    So many rumors, nothing concrete yet.

    In the meantime, in that above post where the MDA IV is supposed to be coming out, it WILL be out. Other leaks follow through, all except current Palm leaks.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Wacky Kirvin Theory #43,918: ALP has nothing at all to do with Palm and their Treo line. Treos will continue to use Palm OS (the Garnet flavor, but it's the only Palm OS left now) for the foreseeable future. Interestingly, Garnet is now the only thing that can be called Palm OS. ALP is Linux.

    Basically, don't presume that Access's announcement has anything to do with Palm OS just because they used to be palmsource once upon a time.

    Addendum: Before the license runs out in 2009, Palm, Inc. will buy the code to Palm OS Garnet outright from Access.

    Um there is the issue of the Palm OS 6 that ACCESS says is a go before ALP.

    Huh? There is no Palm OS 6. Cobalt was never picked up by Palm or anyone else that was in serious production.

    Palm will continue to refine Palm OS 5 until they write their own OS built on Linux. That may take years. In any case, whatever Access is doing is of little consequence. It's not Palm OS and it won't be in Palm devices.

    1) Some people have said that elements of Cobalt were written into ALP. Until there's more for people without NDAs (i.e. developers) to analyze, we can't say for sure.

    2) For ACCESS to release Cobalt as a steppingstone from Garnet to ALP would mean that a) they could get Cobalt to viability--i.e. a licensee with device running Cobalt--and b) that they would have a reason to release a version of Cobalt rather than build the viable elements into ALP, which no one has yet demonstrated. As much promise as Cobalt once had, I think we're more likely to see it rolled in. After all, even if it did see the light of day, it wouldn't be out long enough to justify the support costs.

    3) Do we know that Palm is coming out with their own Linux-based OS? Do we have anything more to substantiate that than that they haven't commented on APL and that they have a small army of Linux programmers on staff? While that could point to in-house OS development, it's not enough to make that certain.

    I think it's just a matter of semantics. If an OS is to replace its underlying code with Linux but is still intended to run programs that run on Garnet and the developer is working with Palm Program developers I am still gonna call it a Palm OS.

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=107150

    "ALP will run PalmOS 5.x Garnet applications in an emulation sandbox, and feature a new one-handed UI and new APIs. It's a rocky transition for long-suffering Palm developers, who may have to learn new skills - and possibly grow beards, too."

    If it runs Palm programs, I have to categorize it as a Palm OS. And ALP will run current Palm OS (Garnet) Programs . In addition Access is working with Palm Program developers so I have to assume

    More stuff along this line. Along with the previous links from TheREgister and other sources, there seems to be a wide disparity of when we will see a new OS other than WM5 on a Treo. The speculation runs from between 2007 and 2010 and soem even postualte that Palm won't make a decision to move away from OS5 till 2008 or later.....yikes, by the time I see ALP, I'll be getting my next Treo from AARP !

    On Tuesday, I attended the ACCESS/PalmSource press conference where they announced the ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP) which will become the future PalmOS platform for our Treo.

    Naturally I was delighted to learn that progress continues to be made on the next generation operating system for our Treo but the presentation was highly technical and aside from a short demo there was little in the way of any tangible ‘front end’ developments.

    PalmSource assured me that all of the company’s resources are currently working on getting ALP ready at the soonest. However, the fact is that ALP’s SDK (which licensees and developers need to develop new products) will not be released before the end of 2006. We should therefore now get used to the reality that an ALP powered Treo is unlikely to become available before the end of 2007 or early 2008 – nearly two years away.....

    .....Since the Treo operating system will not see major changes until 2008 devices are released I believe that the burden of creating a truly appealing Treo worth upgrading to will fall squarely on Palm who will need to use all of its hardware design skills to deliver some truly ‘sexy’ next generation Treo smartphones.

    In the occasion of the purchase of Palm of the rights on the mark, PalmSource was forced to change so much the name of the company like the name of the operating system. To day of today the PalmSource company is in transition process, appearing already like ACCESS|PalmSource or PalmSource, an Access company .

    The following generation of the operating system developed by PalmSource no longer will have the word "palm" in its name, but that will be called ACCESS Linux Platform (or ALP). ALP is designed to be integrated like open platform and flexible cradle in Linux in PDAs and movable devices. ...

    Other technologies of Access and PalmSource that have been added to ALP are:

    * NetFront, navigator Web of Access that or is incopora or has been incorporated in more than 720 movable terminals.
    * Middleware of mail and telephony of PalmSource.
    * Applications standard of PalmSource like: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Memos, multimedia, mail, HotSync and Palm Desktop.....

    ..... In ALP programs will be able to be executed PRC standard, applications Java J2ME (very extended for Linux telephones), graphical applications based on GTK and customized interfaces MAX . .....

    .... ACCESS Linux Platform is the operating system that will replace Palm OS. From the point of view of the user, as much the interface does not have why to change (it must not why have many changes), as the interface can change completely, according to the election of the manufacturer.

    " We do not think that Palm is early to adopter of ALP , but that will hope to that the first versions or are mature and have been proven by other manufacturers - the more small or with experience in Linux -. We remember in addition who Palm counts on a license to use Palm OS v 5 until year 2010.

    Everything aims at that Palm will continue using of base Palm OS 5, adapting it to its necessities like already they have demonstrated that they know to do very well with range Treo (adding support for EVDO and UMTS) and LifeDrive (adding support for 4 Gb of memory).

    Between 2008 and 2010 Palm it will have to make the decision on what operating system will continue using in its terminals beyond 2010. It does not have much sense which they follow forever with Palm OS 5 , and is even little probable that Access|PalmSource allows him to renew the license by an operating system previous to ALP . "

    "Palm fans, steel yourselves. We have some news for you this morning. Today at 3GSM Access, the Japanese company who bought PalmSource last year, announced the (kinda) unexpected: the next version of the Palm OS. We know, crazy, right? PalmSource dragged Palm OS 5 (Garnet) kicking and screaming to its death, but what do we have to show for our years of patience waiting for Palm OS 6 (Cobalt)? Well, first of all, don't call it that at all -- Palm OS 6 / Garnet is gone -- Access is rebranding their OS (and yes, it is now their OS to rebrand) and went "Access Linux Platform," a very sober name for um, the Access platform that runs Linux (kernel 2.6.12 or above, to be exact). And when we say rebranding, we really mean it; though it will run classic Palm OS 5 applications, apps written for Access's new application framework, MAX, and even Linux apps written for the Gnome frontend, the ALP user interface is said to bear precisely no resemblance to the Palm OS of yore. Sounds like all we can do is cross our fingers and hope for the best when Palm OS 6 ALP starts showing up in devices set to be launched in 2007.

    you know what... I would love to see a Treo like product with a 320 x 480 screen, keyboard, wimax, bluetooth, ALP, WCDMA, atleast 1gb memory, and a can opener...

    Can opener is the deal breaker for me...

    I'm not even going to guess what Palm, LG, or who ever will have for us in 2007. the only thing i'm counting on in 07 is my Wedding!

    Its really simple actually.........................

    All you have to do is add 18 months to the release date of the 700p. Now when is the 700p coming out?
