    What ever happened to this? Palm "introduced" the software in May of 2004, according to : http://www.palmsource.com/press/2004/051704_rim.html

    Then they released a developer API in September 2004, according to:
    http://www.palmsource.com/press/2004/092804_rimapi.html

    I've looked on Palms developer web-site, I haven't seen the developmental release... anyone know whats up?

    What happened to anything new from PalmSource. No one's taking OS6 (which gemstone is that named after?) seriously. Blackberry's turned into a black hole.

    If PalmSource could put as much effort into making working software as they put into coming up with clever naming schemes (who CARES what they call the OS0--just make it WORK!), maybe they'd be worth something.

    It's not PalmOne that's in danger of disappearing, I think, it's PalmSource. And that's probably the real reason P1 is looking at alternative OS's. They don't think they can relay on PalmSource to accomplish anything useful.

    It is not up to PalmSource to deliver Blackberry Connect. It is up to RIM to deliver. Welcome to the world of Blackberry Press Releases. From what I am hearing, BB Connect will not have near the functionality of BB. Only sync will be email, no calendar, contacts, etc. Reading that link, that does seem to be the case in that all they talk about is email and Global Address Lookup

    If that's true, it's no better than ChatterEmail, and probably a lot worse.

    I don't think its going to be ideal either, the problem is for those of us in corporate LAN environment that refuses to support anything but RIM we are out of options.. (other than an email redirector,but then you need a machine plugging into the network)..

    I emailed RIM about this 2 weeks ago and they said to contact P1 about when it will be released. So sounds like the ball is in P1's court.

    that's just RIM's way of avoiding the finger pointing at them. Very clever, since they're the ones out there spouting that they'll have the functionality. And then once the customers start demanding the stuff, they say 'well you gotta go ask the other guys'. Nice way to do business. Build up demand, don't deliver, and then say it's up to someone else. As GoodGuy said above, welcome to the world of RIM press releases. FAMOUS for early announce, never deliver.
