Palm boss promises colour screens

Kessler's first dictat as Palm president also calls for two OS updates

Palm Computing is to release not only two major updates to the PalmOS between now and the end of the year, but it will also release a Palm organiser with a colour display. Details are patchy -- actually, details are non-existent -- but that's what new Palm president Alan Kessler has promised readers of US magazine The Business Journal. Updates are expected, but the colour screen is a feature users have been demanding and Palm not supplying for some time. It has also been a key differentiator between the Palm platform and Windows CE devices, which have been colour-enabled for some time. Kessler apparently didn't say which Palms would get the colour treatment, but the Palm V has to be the obvious candidate. ®
