PalmSource has signed Legend Group and Group Sense as new Palm OS licesees. That means either company may now produce devices that run on the Palm OS. Part of the deal also involves creating better support for a Chinese version of the operating system.
The updated Chinese version, Palm OS 4.2, is slated to be released in 2Q of 2003 and will run on Motorola 68K processors. At some point in 3Q 2003, Palm OS 5.3 will be released with support for ARM-based processors.
