Palm drops own operating system and moves to Microsoft's Windows Mobile
The news that Palm is scrapping their proprietary operating system in favor of the Windows Mobile software, is expected to further accelerate the adoption of Roaming Messenger's technology into the marketplace.

Palm is already selling 130,000 of its popular Treo's a month, and Information Week(1) cites statistics estimating that number could double with the adoption of the Windows Mobile operating system.

Microsoft sees the deal as an opportunity to extend Outlook and Office applications to PDAs and gain access to millions of potential customers who are using Palm's handheld devices, including their popular Treo handheld devices. Palm views the transaction as a way for them to access the lucrative corporate market, which is dominated by Microsoft.

Already a recipient of Microsoft's Certified for Windows Mobile designation, Roaming Messenger will provide full support for the new Palm devices. This will allow the latest generation of Windows SmartPhone devices to utilize Roaming Messenger's interoperable, mobile messaging technology.

Commenting on these developments, Jon Lei, Roaming Messenger's CEO, said, "This is great news for us. Treo devices running Windows Mobile immediately opens the door to millions of potential new Roaming Messenger users and to the channel partners and revenue stream that comes with it."
