Run the Palm OS on your fancy Nokia N810 tablet

Share

nokia-810-palm-os.jpgThe tortured and confused development of the Palm OS is still ongoing, with new owner Access opening up its rejigged software so it can be whacked onto the new wave of Nokia web tablets.

The reworked and now Linux-based Palm platform includes support for something called GHost, which is a Garnet virtual machine that runs Garnet OS developments and therefore most of the stuff developed for Palm. Basically, what this means is you can run Palm apps on the N770, N800 and fancy new N810.

I am hopelessly out of my depth reporting on all this, as you may be able to tell. But I’m pretty sure that’s the general gist of it.

There’s a beta version of the complicated stuff you need to download to get it working over on the Access site, should you be dead into hacking and homebrew and all that stuff.
