[From BitmapMan] Brighthand is reporting that Palm OS II has been delayed and is not scheduled to be ready until next year. "In May of this year, Palm, Inc. announced that it is developing its own operating system that will be based on Linux, but also include important parts of the Garnet OS (formerly Palm OS Garnet). At that time, the company said that the first devices running this operating system -- usually referred to as Palm OS II -- would debut late this year. Palm now says it's not going to meet that deadline. During a recent conference call, CEO Ed Colligan said "Products based on the new Linux-based platform that we're working on, that won't be until some time next year." This will leave Palm forced to continue to make models based on the Garnet OS and Windows Mobile."
