Palm OS 1996-2009 – RIP

I am moved to say a few words on the passsing of the late, great Palm OS.  Palm’s CEO Ed Coligan confirmed it’s demise on an investor call this week.

Innovative, mould breaking and intuitive the Palm OS on the palm pilot and other platforms from brick size to usefully pocket size, introduced a whole generation to the PDA, touch screens  and later smart phone’s.  Like many before it, it joins the great past-technolgy- in-the-sky.

With fond memories (and a cupboard full of different palm devices) – I salute you!  RIP.
