A few more details about Palm OS II


Brighthand has posted an article with a few more tidbits of information about the upcoming Palm OS II.

Devices running the Palm OS II will be aimed primarily at consumers while Windows Mobile will remain focused on the business user segment. The user interface will focus on simplifying tasks and actions that most consumers use. These include the use of various media (music, video and games for example), messaging and the use of the built-in camera. The user interface promises to be quite different from that of current Palm devices.
