PalmOS devices losing ground to more multimedia advanced devices

News.com has an interesting article this morning about the fact that since development on the Palm OS for Palm devices has slowed over the last couple of years, new multimedia-rich applications are being developed for Windows Mobile, Symbian and Java-supporting phones instead of Palm OS, which has not yet been developed with features to support multimedia hungry applications which are appearing elsewhere on other devices (such as streaming TV and movies, and music files with embedded DRM).

The last new version of the Palm OS was released 2 years ago. Access, the company that bought PalmSource, plans to shift it’s OS development to a Linux-kernel based version of the OS by next year.
