a LinuxWorld presentation by Didier Diaz.
""What Linux has done on the PC and server can also happen on the phone and handheld," Didier Diaz, vice president of marketing at PalmSource, said during a presentation at LinuxWorld in Boston.
"We want to speed up the creation of a complete Linux-based platform for the mobile phone."
PalmSource is the developer of the Palm OS mobile operating system. The company was acquired last November by Access of Japan, and has since shifted its focus entirely to the creation of a Linux operating system for mobile phones.
Several other mobile phone makers have created Linux phones, including Samsung and Motorola, but unlike the competition, ALP will feature APIs that allow developers to create applications for the device.
