The FIRST and ONLY Palm compatible Linux-based operating system for Palm IIIx and IIIxe!

Empower Technologies Announces Release of Linux DA O/S



Jul 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Empower Technologies Inc.

    REDMOND, WA, July 18 /PRNewswire/ - Empower Technologies Inc. announces
 the release of the world's first major operating system (O/S) upgrade for Palm
 IIIx and IIIxe handhelds. Empower Technologies' embedded Linux DA O/S DB v1.0
 is faster, more powerful, and more robust than the original Palm O/S. Empower
 Technologies becomes the first and only corporation within the consumer
 electronics industry to replace the Palm O/S, providing Palm handheld users
 and other PDA manufacturers with an alternative O/S.
     Linux DA O/S replaces the Palm O/S within the actual handheld device but
 still remains fully compatible with Palm's hardware, proving that Linux DA O/S
 is a flexible and powerful operating system. Using the open source Linux
 kernel, Empower Technologies has designed Linux DA O/S to be the first Linux
 compatible O/S scaled down for the Motorola Dragonball CPU platform used by
 Palm handhelds.
     A DEMO version of Linux DA O/S for Palm IIIx and IIIxe, along with a user
 manual, is now available for FREE download from Empower Technologies at
 www.linuxda.com. The DEMO version includes Address, Schedule, Calculator, and
 game software applications.
     Empower Technologies Inc. will soon be launching an e-commerce site to
 allow consumers to easily purchase the full version of the Linux DA O/S. The
 first 1,000 consumers to pre-order on the Linux DA web-site will receive a
 gift. Also, every pre-order received by August 1st will be eligible to enter a
 draw to win one of ten Palm IIIxe-compatible handhelds with embedded Linux DA
 O/S.
 
     Linux DA is the dominant software platform for the Consumer Electronics
 Industry. With Linux DA, Empower Technologies' vision is to create a common
 operating system compatible with all consumer electronics products, regardless
 of the manufacturer brand. This unique technology allows for complete
 connectivity among various consumer electronics appliances, satisfying end-
 consumers' demands for increased communication and choice.
