Access Renames Palm OS, Fanboys Look On Accusingly

, has made yet another move to make Palm fanboys cry: The Palm OS is now called the Garnet OS.


This means that the last vestiges of the operating system that started the modern handheld and smartphone computing industries is nothing more. Gone are the masturbatory jokes and good-natured puns. While the Garnet OS is in every other way the successor to the Palm OS, losing the Palm name and inference means that any marketing cachet with the brand that Access had is long gone.

That means it’s going to be even more of an uphill climb for the manufacturer to make any headway against Symbian and POS that is Windows Mobile 5. Great. Thanks, Access!
