Aceeca Brings PalmOS Back Into The Market

When Palm launched its webOS, everybody expected the existing Palm OS to die out, and it did (in a way), but the folks over at Aceeca certainly think enough of it to license the use of the OS for 2 of their upcoming handsets, the Aceeca PDA32 Garnet, and the MEZ1500 Garnet. The former apparently is taller than a Palm TX, and is about twice as thick as the TX. It’ll sport an ARM processor, QVGA screen, SD card slot and might be priced at $199. The MEZ1500 Garnet might resemble the Samsung BlackJack, targeting corporate users. It sports a faster processor, bigger battery, QVGA display and also an expansion slot. It will be going for a whopping $499 and not even have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (though it’s available at an additional cost). Do you think it was wise of them to revive PalmOS, or would it have been smarter to follow the trend and use Google’s Android?
