ACCESS has updated its website to reveal that it will not release the ALP environment to developers by the end of the year. The company has pushed back the release to sometime in the first half of 2007, when it will reveal the full capabilities of the OS, as well as its official name. By pushing back the OS release to developers, ACCESS has also pushed back the release date of any devices running the new platform. It is unclear that any phones running ALP will be launched next year. Although ACCESS scored a win this summer when European carrier Orange announced it would support the ALP platform, the company has recently been dealt a few blows. Palm licensied back the source code for Palm OS 5 (Garnet), indicating the company may be more interested in developing its own Palm-powered devices than running ACCESS's platform.

This is a real disappointment.

Access doesn't get its act together, competition is going to eat them alive, more and more PDA smartphone maker are pouring into the market it almost feels daily. The difference b/w the 650 to 700 series and the wait time for a release was horrific, they had Treos w/ Windows Mobile 5.0 since September of 2005 and it was released almost a year later to the day. :END RANT:
