"It is now looking increasingly unlikely that Microsoft's Windows CE is going to dominate in the small OS market. It is being beaten time and again by competition from Palm OS, Symbian and Linux. The latest move in this market is the announcement yesterday that Sony and Palm (i.e. 3Com) have agreed to share technology.
Sony will use the Palm OS in new hand-held devices that combine functions that are typical of the Palm V or Psion Organiser with audio-visual functionality that can be found in various Sony devices. Additionally Palm will be adopting the Sony Memory Stick as a means of storing and transferring data. The Memory Stick is a small flash memory card available in up to 16MB capacity, which can be used to store digital data including still images, video and music."
