While Palm's CFO Andy Brown wasn't exactly forthcoming
with details about its elusive next-gen OS, a recent interview with top dog Ed Colligan revealed quite a bit about codename Nova
. As if it wasn't official enough already, we're told that Palm OS 2.0
(which is also not the final moniker) will indeed be Linux-based, and Ed continued to say that it would be "driven around the internet and web-based applications." Of course, a Palm interview wouldn't be a Palm interview without at least some mention of the now-defunct Foleo
, and the bigwig left a crack in the rumor drawer by stating that he "still believed the idea would be vindicated some day." Trust us, there's way more where this came from, so head on down to the read link if your interest is piqued.
