Will the ALP be the next mobile Linux OS?

,----[ Quote ]
| With all of the news surrounding the Google Android Linux device (see my full
| review) it seems that ACCESS didn’t want people to forget they are still
| working on a mobile Linux operating system called the ACCESS Linux Platform
| (ALP). We learned about some screenshots that were shown in August 2007 and
| it seems that ACCESS continues to work on the operating system.
| PalmInfocenter has the latest news that the ALP is up to version 3.0 and the
| version designed for mobile phones will be known as ALP mini. However, it
| still sounds like we won’t see devices with this Linux OS until late 2009.

Access Linux Platform upgraded, downsized

,----[ Quote ]
| Access Linux Platform (ALP) is the mobile platform used by Access, the
| Japanese firm that bought PalmSource and the Palm OS — which was subsequently
| renamed 'Garnet' — in 2005. On Monday, Access chief technology officer
| Tomihisa Kamada showed off ALP 3.0 at the company's annual showcase event.
|
| Access claimed that ALP 3.0 is fully compliant with the standards of the LiMo
| Foundation, a major industry group dedicated to creating a standardised
| mobile Linux middleware layer. This compatibility makes it easier for
| developers to create applications that will run across a wide range of mobile
| Linux handsets.

Does ACCESS threaten Windows Mobile? (Video demonstration & interview.)

,----[ Quote ]
| This year ACCESS released their first new platform with PalmSource. The
| platform looks like older Palm OS versions. However, it was developed based
| on Linux, provides true multitasking, improved graphics and single finger
| navigation. It has a number of other enhancements as well. *
|
| Third party applications developed for Palm OS devices work on ACCESS' new
| platform. So Palm OS customers can migrate to ACCESS without giving up their
| existing software. Palm OS developers can easily write new applications for
| ACCESS. Also, most of the existing 30 thousand Palm OS third party software
| titles can be purchased for use on ACCESS devices. * *
