Palm expected to introduce its Linux-based operating system (code-named Nova) at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. Analysts are saying that this is Palm’s best and last chance to gain any sort of market share in the smartphone market.
Jack Gold, analyst for J.Gold Associates said “The bottom line is this is Palm’s last gasp. They have to come out with a new OS to make themselves relevant again. Their old OS is a geriatric case. It’s been around for a long time and has been marginally improved, but it hasn’t kept pace with the iPhone or (Google) Androids of the world.”
