And yes, we mean Palm OS, not the more recently defunct WebOS that ran on the most recent crop of Palm devices. For $49.95 you can experience the proto-smartphone platform all over again right on your far more capable Android handset. OK, so StyleTap’s Palm OS emulator isn’t designed simply to capitalize on people’s nostalgia for clunky mobile operating systems of days past, it is actually designed for business-class customers that still need access to the platform thanks for its association with various pieces of machinery and database systems.
The emulator has been available for iOS, Windows Mobile, and even Symbian, but availability for Android provides businesses with yet another option when outfitting their workforce. The emulator and embedded OS can take full advantage of compatible hardware within current generation devices. If you do, in fact, fall into the category of people that just want a fun trip down memory lane, StyleTap is offering a 14-day free trial upon installing the app (accomplished via sideloading only).
