Palm rolls over

by Volker Weber


Windows-Treo exclusive on the Verizon EDVO network. For now. Or more precisely: "Early next year". With Ed Colligan praising Windows Mobile 5.0 as "second to none", Palm will have a hard time selling their other wares. ;-)


That is a great pity, given the instability of Windows Mobile compared to Palm OS :-((
(Or has WinM improved recently?)

Why don't the other 2 gentlemen look very happy??

should the pic somehow lead to the video itself?
in case it should - it does not ;-)

I liked (?) the comment at the beginning by the Palm CEO - that they'd been working on this for a number of years. Makes the buggy state of the 650 under Palm pretty understandable. Might also make the class-action suit get some more traction?

As I am using and developing WM5 since it's first magneto builds arrived I just can say that it's clearly several steps forward. I cannot say anything to the the "stability" issues some people seem to expect since I only had some reboots with the RTM Build of WM5 that I could clearly reproduce and trace back to my own code.

It's a great OS with a great development environment - I also used PALM OS for several years - but when it came to developing software... okay I should only talk about that when I had something good to say... so I'll better say nothing now...

I've had three Treos (650, 600, 300) and two Palms before that. The 650 is the buggiest of the bunch. Not that it crashes all of the time but I get freeze-ups and resets a few times a week which were incredibly rare on the older devices. PalmSource seems to have lost its way.
