Palm launches App Store for PalmOS, Windows Mobile apps

Palm App StorePalm has taken a cue from Apple and launched a dedicated store for PalmOS and Windows Mobile applications. Sure, there were already plenty of places to purchase and download Palm and Windows Mobile applications, but the new Palm App Store which is powered by PocketGear lets browse, search, and find applications while using your mobile device and download them with directly to your phone or PDA.

The new app store has about 5,000 applications at the moment, and more than a thousand of them are free.

Palm is expected to launch a new device at CES in January that may run the next generation of the company's operating system, which to be honest is a lot more exciting than a new application that lets you download thousands of PalmOS and Windows Mobile applications, most of which have been around for ages.
