Palm has launched an update for its latest Palm OS smartphone to allow the devices to Sync with Microsoft Exchange servers. Not only will it allow users to sync their Palms directly with Exchange, but it will also allow Windows Mobile Messaging and Security Feature Pack-like functionality, including direct push messaging, and remote device administration and wipe. The update will be available as a free download for Treo 680 and 700p owners on Monday. Palm OS is the last smartphone OS to get Exchange Activesync integration - S60, UIQ and even some high end feature phones have already integrated this software. In a separate announcement Access, the new owner of the Palm OS, has announced it will rename Palm OS as Garnet OS.

I Thought...

... according to another article on here palm bought back its OS from access and they were going to create their own OS...
Ask Rich.
I was under the same impression. Did palm sell the rights to Palm OS to access again? or did the original deal where palm purchased their software from access fall through?

I really like palm, but they seem to consistently fall short of their pot...
No. Palm licensed Palm OS from Access, including rights to the source code... to modify it and continue developing enhancements like this new Exchange software.

Access technically still owns Palm OS, and now calls it Garnet OS.

I thought....

the 700p already had Microsoft ActiveSync? I have the 700p and have VersaMail and access my exchange server.

What is this ?
... get mine to sync by itself... i still have to click the stupid get button to receive my emails and then when i delete them on the device and on the server and update it i get the samme emails back...

Sounds to me... Palm didn't have a choice BUT to offer Exchange.

Hey, better late than never.
