Palm drops Windows Mobile

The Palm Pre might not be quite ready for its much–mooted UK release. But Palm is throwing all its weight behind its flagship phone’s WebOS, confirming plans to drop Windows Mobile from its next–gen line up. Read on for all the details.

It’s no surprise that Palm has decided to abandon Windows Mobile and keep its eyes on the WebOS prize instead. During an otherwise workaday results call, it’s CEO Jon Rubinstein confirmed the news.

“Due to the importance of webOS to our overall strategy, we’ve made the decision to dedicate all future development resources to the evolution of webOS,” he said.

That means the Treo will be the last Palm cell to pack in Microsoft’s much–maligned operating system. However, Rubinstein did say that WebOS could work for business, meaning the Treo may be revived with a sparkly new look.

With such a device still in the rumour stage, you’re better off getting excited about the Palm Pre’s imminent arrival in the UK, as well as the forthcoming Palm Pixi.
