Palm to use Wind River Platform for Foleo
In an announcement at Linuxworld in San Francisco, Palm stated that it will be using the Wind River Linux platform for development based on the recently launched Foleo Linux device.
Foleo is a new mobile device concept by Palm, that fills the gap between PDA and notebook. Palm will also be supporting Wind River with services and support for customers. The aim of this alliance is to develop new applications for the Foleo and to promote third-party development.
In the next few months the partners will be concentrating on modifying the Wind River platform for consumer devices to support the mobile device. The Foleo was designed to be WLAN-capable and is also compatible to Palm's Treo smartphone.
