    Yes, there is no doubt they are trying to sell it, but I'm still unconvinced that Palm is interested in it. I guess we will have to wait and see. Notice that they never, ever show any screen shots running on any existing Palm devices.

    I'll also note that all the screenshots shown look like a "phone" UI. The only ones that ever look like the Palm OS are those running Palm apps in emulation. While changing the UI isn't a bad thing, Every screenshot I've seen just looks like a lower end phone UI. Symbian UIs look much better to me than the ALP screenshots I've seen so far. It's too early to tell but I don't see anything that looks any better than the existing Palm OS they've shown so far. It will be very interesting to see the reports of people in August.

    the interface is undeniably in English! Similarly the latest news has Access demoing ALP in the US (not China):

    While I agree the UI that we've seen needs a lot of work, it's clear that the plan is not to produce an OS for (only) low end phones. The plan is to support multiple wireless (GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, Wifi, Bluetooth) and to produce a multitasking OS able to run Palm OS, native Linux, MAX and Java apps. The built-in, MAX-based apps will include PIM (based on Palm PIM apps), a browser (Netfront) and an AV app, together with the phone dialer, messaging and a home screen app.
