Palm Closing Retail Stores

In what seems like a downward spiral for one of yesterday’s bigger PDA and smartphone companies, Palm is shuttering doors on all of their retail stores as well as the locations with Airport Wireless shops. You can probably blame Research in Motion for this one as BlackBerries have really eaten into their market share. We have to agree with most people when we say that Palm’s OS seems antiquated when compared to RIM, WinMo6, and even Symbian. What does all of this have to do with Android? Well, Palm is building a new Linux-based operating system that is scheduled to be released at the end of this year, competing with Google’s Android Linux-based smartphone operating system. Yet another offering in an increasingly crowded field.

  1. Hopefully Android and the new Palm OS will be compatible. But would it even be possible just because both will be Linux?
