PalmSource: Going...Going...Gone!

PalmSource is being sold to Japanese firm, Access in a cash-only deal.

Wow!

After the name reversion by the hardware component from PalmOne to Palm, and the likely decision by that company to utilize Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 as the underlying OS, there just did not seem to be any use for PalmSource.

Also, the move to Linux has yet to pay off.

However, Access will allow the company’s products to live on, in the NTT-DoCoMo products utilizing the NetFront line it produces.
