What Isn't in Palm OS Cobalt... Yet

With the announcement of Palms new OS several new and improve things are included. However some things aren't included with this new OS. For example Palm OS is no longer supporting synchronization on the Mac platform.

The look and feel of the Palm OS has changed very little since its earliest days. Though many are accustomed to the way the user interface works, one of the most popular categories of Palm applications is Launcher replacements, which shows that there's room for improvement. However, the UI in Palm OS Cobalt remains almost unchanged from the previous versions (see picture at left). About the only difference is the inclusion of the Task Bar, though several handhelds already use versions of this.

Still, Larry Slotnick from PalmSource said this morning that his company intends to change the look and feel in the next version of Cobalt. He didn't give any details of what the differences will be. Still, the changes made to the new version of the Address Book might be a clue of the direction PalmSource is going. It uses a series of tabs across the top of the screen to show various screens of information.
