PalmSource today announced Palm OS Cobalt 6.1, a new version of the company's Cobalt software for advanced PDA devices. The new version includes integrated support for GSM/GPRS telephony, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Also included are features supporting one-handed navigation, similar to features on PalmOne's Treo 600. The new OS also supports perpheral accessories via SDIO and USB On-the-Go. On the display side, version 6.1 adds new, more modern UI elements, and supports higher-resolution displays. The company continues to offer the separate "Garnet" OS for mass-market smartphones. The company also announced version 3.0 of its Web Browser software, featuring NetFront technology, and new software for over-the-air (OTA) download and installation of applications.

Palm on Sub $250 phone

I would be thrilled to see palm os on a more "normal" form factor with a cheaper price, which is where garnett (todays palm os 5) will be used.

Treo is great but palm on a regularly sized flip or other phone would be fantastic. The existing operating systems they put on those things suck, though i do like symbian. The samsungs that have palm (sph-i550 for example) are too big and too expensive.
I agree - it would be nice to see a more affordable Palm based phone because like Symbian there's a lot of software available for it (and it's easy to develop more).
