Palm is teaming up with US-based software developer Information Appliance International (IAI), to drum up support for its wireless computing solutions. IAI is going to be marketing its Arabic Palm operating system, while Palm will showcase its family of handheld computers and accessories.

Visitors to the stand in hall three will be able to see some wireless Palm applications in action. “Together we will be showing off a range of business applications, for small and midsize business, as well as solutions for corporate, government, education and healthcare,” says Stuart Maughan, general manager, Palm Middle East.

“Information Appliance International will also be showing its Arabic OS (APOS) for the Palm OS, together with other business and consumer applications both in Arabic and English,” he adds.

Many of the solutions on display are going to take advantage of GPRS, GSM, Bluetooth and 802.11b technologies.

“We will be demonstrating a vast range of Palm solutions including, GPRS/GSM, Bluetooth and 802.11b. There will also be a cool Palm for everyone’s pocket, so please come and try for yourself to see why Palm continues to be the leader in the handheld market,” says Maughan.

Key to driving Palm into the region’s business segment is the Arabised Palm operating system (APOS). The APOS platform is open software architecture for Arabic handheld computing, which provides a basis for third party developers to create and deliver successful mobile computing solutions in Arabic.
