Release of ACCESS Linux Platform for Smartphones Pushed Back

Back at 3GSM in February, PalmSource (now officially ACCESS Systems) introduced the ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP), a new Linux-based mobile operating system (OS) for smartphones that's intended to be the follow up to the Palm OS. The company said at the time it would get full version of the platform to licensees by the close of 2006.

According to ACCESS, it won't make that deadline, after all. Instead, manufacturers will have to wait by as much as an additional half year before they get ALP in their hands. As a result, it is now pretty unlikely ALP-based devices will make it into end-user's hands by the end of next year.
