PalmSource teams up with MontaVista

Tue Aug 9, 2005 - 10:34 AM EDT - By James Hromadka

PalmSource announced today that it is teaming up with MontaVista Software to accelerate development of a Linux-based Palm operating system (OS). PalmSource has joined MontaVista's Mobilinux Open Framework partner program, and MontaVista has joined PalmSource's Palm Powered Mobile World program.

"By joining MontaVista's Mobilinux Open Framework partner program, PalmSource is further demonstrating its commitment to enabling Palm OS, the mobile industry's leading application framework, to run on Linux," said Albert Chu, vice president, business development for PalmSource. "MontaVista is the leading Linux provider for mobile devices with world class partners and customers. Partnering with MontaVista will enable faster time to market for our mutual customers who want to deliver compelling, cost effective Linux-based mobile phone solutions."

It's good to see that PalmSource is doing what it takes to get Palm-on-Linux going as soon as possible. By partnering with companies that have embedded Linux experience, the company will hopefully be able to make the move without too many hiccups.
