    I'm getting pretty excited. Some interesting hints about Palm, Sony, and Handspring in this article!
    wow, it's been awhile.....things have REALLY changed...why is my Visor Edge still in my hand? Will a Treo fit better?

    I was particularly interested in this quote regarding what's coming this year from Palm Licensee's:

    *Higher resolution screens
    *Enhanced audio and video
    *Faster processors, and coprocessors (DSPs or other coprocessing chips)
    *Built-in MP3 playback from at least one Palm licensee (there are also MP3 add-ons coming soon for Palm and Handspring systems)
    *Clip-on or integrated wireless modems for most of the world's major wireless standards, including GSM, GPRS, CDMA, CDPD, Mobitex, 802.11, PDC, and more
    *Bluetooth clip-ons and SD cards

    Will HS be able to keep up/surpass?

    It looks like Palm is planning a barrage of stuff in the coming year...

    The orginal post was about Palm Licensee's. It's probably Handspring or Sony that are planning most of the new upgrades. Can Palm keep up?
    There is nothing yet made by man that cannot be improved upon.

    A lot of this innovation will come from Palm licensees before it's built into the OS. That's the way we work with the licensees -- it's almost like open source. They can add features and get an exclusive on them for a while, and then it gets rolled into the OS.

    It sounds like Handspring built the 16-bit color support and Palm will be using it.

    ...With all this new functionality, are we going to end up with a less-stable os?

    Right now, the PalmOS is rock solid. It would lose a lot of the edge it has over CE if that changed.

    I said this over at brighthand, but I'll say it here too:

    I doubt that some of the licensecs (or even all of them) could make such a substantial chage to the operating system without palm making the change first.

    Ha, he still won't answer my question on pixel resolution. Palm reps always give a song and dance routine on this issue. "It's not a's a feature!"
