palmOne Set to Launch Palm OS 6.0

On December 29, palmOne will launch its next handheld OS, Palm OS 6.0, the company said this week. The release sets the stage for a new generation of connected, media-capable devices. Because of its capabilities, Palm OS 6.0 will find a home on high-end devices throughout 2004, the company noted, whereas the current version, Palm OS 5.0, will reside on low-end and mainstream handhelds. Palm OS 6.0 will improve on its predecessor with better multitasking, better support for background applications, advanced graphics, and easier adaptability to new kinds of devices.
