PalmSource has offered us a glimpse of the next milestone for PalmOS, version 6.0 due for release next year.

Version 6.0 will be as dramatic a change for the platform as OS X was for Apple, or NT was for Microsoft, and represents the culmination of work from the former Be team Palm acquired last year.

too bad these new palms still only have 16mb of ram. Why don't they just jump to 64mb? they don't have the processor limiting them anymore

BeOS should have run pretty well on your 4400 considering that it was originally designed for a dual 603 box running at 66 MHz. It was amazing on my 120 MHz 604 and even better on the 225 MHz 604e. Whooosh! :eek:
