It's true. Look around PalmSource for more details.

Palm spun off software division (PalmSource) into a seperate software company (PalmSource.)

Hardware division (Palm) merged with HandSpring to form palmOne.

Actually, I did some research and found out it's not true. OS X will continue to be supported by Palm. Yay! :D

Where did you hear this? Palm has stated flat out that Cobalt will not ship with a version of Palm Desktop for OS X. There will continue to be 3rd party software but there won't be any out of the box support for OS X.

I hope they go with a 3rd Party manufacture. Mainly because Palm Desktop is the Devil. Oh well.

What I want from my Palm is the ability to sync my Address book right.

I want the picture to sync and more importantly I want the address groups to sync.
