Japan’s Access, the company that purchased PalmSource and Palm OS back in 2005, has today officially announced and unveiled the successor to Palm OS, the Access Linux Platform 3.0 or simply ALP 3.0. This linux based release, which is expected to replace the Garnet OS (renamed from Palm OS), not only supports native Linux and Java apps, but also has support for legacy Garnet OS apps.
For the lesser mortal phones, Access also unveiled the ALP mini. The ALP mini operating system is like a stripped down version of the new successor and is intended to drive smaller devices.
The official availability of ALP 3.0 is yet to be announced, though ALP mini has been made available to the manufacturers already.
