by Reads (4,825)

The most recent beta of the Palm OS emulator for Nokia Internet Tablets was set to expire, but Access Co. Ltd. has released a new one. This has no new other features, however.

Garnet VM for Nokia Internet Tablets is an emulated application environment that lets users run Palm OS applications on the Maemo Linux platform. It includes just the default Calendar, Memos, Contacts, and Tasks applications that one would find on Palm OS devices — like the Palm TX, Treos, and Centros — and third-party applications can be installed and used.

It supports screen rotation, the use of virtual memory to store software, and the full-screen running of applications. 

Beta 5 of the Garnet VM is compatible with Maemo Linux OS2006, OS2007, and OS2008, which means it runs on the Nokia N810, N800, and 770 Internet Tablets.

It is not compatible with the latest version of the Maemo OS, which is available on the Nokia N900 smartphone.
