Sony Ericsson says it has no plans to start using the Palm OS on its smart phones.
Earlier this week, David Nagel, the CEO of PalmSource, mentioned in an interview with Dow Jones that his company is in talks with Sony Ericsson, which raised the possibility that the mobile phone maker may be considering switching to the Palm OS.
The confusion is probably caused by different interpretations of the word “talks”. PalmSource has almost certainly proposed to Sony Ericsson the idea of switching its operating system. However, the European mobile phone maker isn’t in favor of the idea and so formal negotiations aren’t going on.
