PalmSource has just announced that HuneTec, a Korean wireless communication devices manufacturer, is the latest company to license the Palm OS. HuneTec will develop enterprise ready two-way messaging devices that use the ReFLEX wireless network.
HuneTec has not yet announced any details on the Palm OS devices it is developing, nor has it said when these will be available. HuneTec specializes in creating devices that use ReFLEX technologies.
The ReFLEX network is just for data, not voice, and it doesn’t provide very high bandwidth. However, it does offer “always on” access, wide coverage, and strong signals that easily penetrate the walls of office buildings. It uses Internet Protocol (IP), so devices utilizing the ReFLEX network have access to email and the Internet. It is owned and operated by WebLink Wireless.
“By combining the powerful ReFLEX technology and the outstanding coverage and reach of the ReFLEX networks with HuneTec’s ability to create innovative Palm Powered devices, customers will benefit from a whole new generation of wireless mobility solutions,” said David Nagel, president and chief executive officer of PalmSource Inc.
