Palm Source, the new name for the section of Palm that develops the PDA’s operating system (OS), continued its attempts at 3GSM to push Palm as an OS for mobile phones. It had some success to for a second mobile phone that runs using Palm (the first, the Handspring Treo 600 launched in December) is heading for Europe and the UK in late spring.
Manufactured by Group Sense, which has a huge presence in the Asian mobile market, the G88 combines Palm personal organiser style facilities with a mobile phone in a candy bar style handset with a sliding keypad not dissimilar to the Samsung SGH-D410.
The phone, which runs via Palm Source’s 4.1.2 operating system, features an integrated digital camera, 2.2inch 65k colour screen, e-mail and Java. It boasts 16MB RAM, 16MB ROM and a 2MB internal flash memory card.
We really liked the Palm OS on the Treo, but are not yet convinced as to whether it will function on the G88’s smaller screen. More from here
