So now Palm has jumped on the software store bandwagon. In an interesting move (interesting to me, at least), Palm has announced a new mobile software store. I find this interesting for a couple of reasons. First, Apple has already done it. Google has also already done it for Android. So why is Palm now getting in the game?
This strategy has worked well for Apple. Palm may be thinking this is the wave of the future for delivering software to users. Of course, that’s assuming that Palm actually has a future. However, given Palm’s dismal outlook, the creation of the mobile software store is certainly an act of optimism.
However, perhaps it’s more than an act of optimism. It could be an act of supreme confidence based on Palm’s expected reception of their new OS and hardware. January will tell.
