Palm software CEO talks tough on Microsoft rivalry
Posted: 21-Jan-2002 [Source: Reuters via Yahoo]

[Palm's OS Group CEO says Pocket PC devices are too large because their "operating system is bloated."]

by Franklin Paul, New York -- "It seems the gloves have come off between leader Palm Inc.(NasdaqNM:PALM - news) and Microsoft Corp. (NasdaqNM:MSFT - news) in the fight for dominance of the handheld computer software market, and Palm's David Nagel is jabbing.

"Palm on Monday announced it has completed the split of its operating system (OS) division from the rest of the company, which makes Palm-branded personal digital assistants (PDA), the popular pocket-sized organizers.

"The software unit will now report separately on the financial performance of its licensing business, and could eventually be spun off or sold by Palm.

"The Palm OS, used by the bulk of handheld computers, walks a path blazed by its biggest rival Microsoft, whose Windows operating system drives most of the world's PCs.
