    Great article. Thanks for posting it. I am hopeful and see promise. Having so many Apple guys on staff is a great step.

    Good Palm are finally getting it out but at this stage I really doubt they'll make any real impact with it. My feeling is Palm is done...

    I feel like Palm should just make an Android compatible Treo and be done with it already. I mean, they already make Windows Mobile devices, so there is a history of producing hardware that's not running their own OS...

    Progress? Well, at least I can get color traffic maps now...
    Psion 3a -> Psion 3c -> Palm IIIXE -> Palm VIIx -> Kyocera 7135 -> Treo 650 -> Centro

    I wonder if it will crash like the introduction of win 98....

    Seriously though, I hope that Palm does not blow this one or it will be game over.

    That will likely NEVER happen. They told Google to take a hike and blew it.

    Three musketeers: Android, Nova, ALP.

    If all those 3 for 1 and 1 for all... there is a chance to dominate the market

    Ya, especially when they don't support numerous softwares that we already buy... unless we get free upgrades from the software vendors

    Palm rules in two aspects: usability and tons of software... screw them both... then it is game over

    ADD: also please make a better looking device LOL

    I thought that Access, at least, was designing their OS to be able to run legacy apps? Maybe Nova will too?

    No maybe! It has been stated that Nova WILL run PalmOS appliciations.

    I've been with Palm since the mid-90's (with my old Vx). Right now I am still on my surprisingly stable 700p. It's in good physical condition, but it looks outdated. Plus the dang headset jack is broken, and VolumeCare only gave me a partial fix. I could use a new device.

    If the Nova device does not (1) look good/modern, AND (2) run (most of) my existing Palm apps, then it's off to Windows or RIM I go. I will wait for it, but it had better be good. I do not think I am alone, either.

    Same here.

    If This isnt backward compatible and multitasking with a better webbrowser than I'll either go with the Treo Pro or Touch HD if they ever come to Sprint.

    Im willing to give up backward compatiblity if its a real improvement in other area's.

    how about if it actually comes with the abilities developers have been getting out of garnet right out of the box.


    First of all all the functions of resco explorer. kinoma resco backup, 4cast, audio gateway, callrec, tomtom. warpspeed/lightspeed, munduIM, power hero, skinUI, volumecare.

    If the new OS has the abilities of all these apps built in I might consider going to a device without backwards compatibility.


    Besides All the applications are whats kept Palm alive this long. Theyd just shoot themselves in the foot if they didnt build a backwards compatibility layer in the new OS. Besides if dmitry can build his own OSwhih basicly emulates the Palm garnet environment why cant the team over at palm do it?
