Treos with Linux and Symbian?

Some weeks ago Palm announced the Treo 700w. And some users still don't want to believe that Palm now uses WindowsMobile, too. But the Treo 700w just seems to be the forerunner of a whole fleet of non-Palm OS devices produced by Palm.

As reported by LinuxDevices.com there soon could be a Treo running Linux:
Palm will ship Linux-powered mobile phones this year, say sources claiming to be close to the company. The devices will be powered by Wind River Linux, and pending carrier reaction, may well be the first Linux-powered handsets distributed widely within the US.
And "Gadgets on the go" tells us that Palm even plans to bring out a Smartphone running Symbian OS:
Ijust heard from a ***very reliable source*** that there is indeed a new Palm Treo and a Symbian Treo in the works for both CDMA and GSM networks.
What do you think about this roumors? Is it a whise decision to support 4 different operating systems and platforms? And which effect will this have on the Palm OS and on PalmSource?

These rumours are complete bullshit, there is not one single grain of truth in them!

But no wonder that TamsPalm is picking this up...

Hi,
I am not sure about the Linux and the Symbian versions(altough the last rumour has been around for quite some time!!!). But the Palm OS version....um, it gotta come eventually!
Anyways, when we fuirst heard abiout the WinCE Treo, we all said the same thing. Palm isnt as we knew it before(except the customer care;).
Best regards

The Win Treo is in fact NOT as new as you dumbo think. Early samples have already been shown to selected public early summer LAST year...

What you are writing here is just pure (and poor) fantasy, just to get at least some attention.

If you were to run any of the companies you are commenting here, these would file for chapter11 within hours rather than weeks!!!

Hi,
