Palm’s New Mobile OS Nova= Something Huge?

My experience of the the Palm OS is that it was satble but lacked any wow factor and now Palm claims they may have a game changer with their new Palm’s OS set to be unveiled on January’s CES called Nova led by Ex-Apple  S enior Vice President for Hardware Engineering and “150 engineers since Rubinstein’s arrival. Among them are Jeff Devine, a top operations executive with Nokia (NOK), and Way Ting, an operating system guru from Silicon Graphics (SGIC). “We haven’t had any trouble selling our story,” says consultant Dan Walker, who was Apple’s chief talent officer from 2000 to 2004 and now leads recruiting for Palm”.

” Palm insiders are optimistic. “I’m fundamentally convinced we’re onto something huge,” says Mike Bell, a 16-year Apple engineering star who joined Palm last year. “Some of the stuff we’re working on here is mind-blowing—better than anything I’ve seen before”…. <More>

“It is designed as an ultra portable open source computer with gaming
controls, it is very small, around about the same size as a DS. It can
easily fit in your pocket. It is by far the most powerful handheld in
the world both in terms of raw CPU power and 3D graphics capability, it
will be able to handle things such as Firefox3 or Quake3 with ease.
Around 10+ Hours battery life. [http://openpandora.org/]” Via <UMPCPortal.com>

Realistic, Fast 3D Graphics For You Anywhere from The Cloud

“Imagine you could play video games – and immerse yourself in virtual worlds – with 3D graphics comparable to those found in blockbuster films like Transformers or WALL•E. And then imagine you could experience and control those graphics in real-time from any internet-enabled device, whether it be a desktop computer, set-top box or even iPhone.

Sound far-fetched? It doesn’t to Jules Urbach, founder and CEO of a Los Angeles-based company called OTOY, who has been working with microprocessor manufacturer AMD since 2006 to make the idea of server-side graphics processing a reality. If all goes as planned, 3D rendering will become just another computer task that jumps from the client to the cloud. Call it gaming as a service (GaaS) if you will. No more Xboxes, no more PlayStations, and no more souped-up PC towers. Just a monitor, some controls, and a way to receive and display frames generated by a powerful server farm”….<More>

Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

Question: “Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

Part of Answer # 1

“What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

“The big question is – can WiMAX catch up w or replace Cellular adoption and maturity? Intel and Samsung would like to make it the big connect-anywhere feature for new UMPC’s, but I note that for instance Sprint just delayed its planned US rollout – so we have to wait and see.

Korean WiBro is a Govt supported service up and running, and I have heard that Indian operators will now look to WiMAX for gaining cheap RoW into cities and across slums areas instead of trenching-in fiber”….   Via Linked In Answers

I Could Have Been A Contender- The Mobile Phone Operating System Wars

“Though the PC OS wars were brutal and delivered many clashes over the years, the smartphone OS war may make those battles seem tame. This time, the stakes are even higher, as the market for digital devices is four to five times larger in terms of units. So, which operating-system makers will be the major vendors vying for supremacy in the smartphone market over the next five to eight years? —next: The Contenders > >>> <More>
