Palm TX support added in the main kernel

On October 9, Linux kernel 2.6.27 was released with support for the Palm TX handhelds. That was a merge from the hackndev kernels, which have had experimental support for many PDAs for a long time. Also, I have noticed that general support for PXA2xx/PXA3xx microcontrollers are much more mature than it was one year ealier.

Congratulations for the achievement !

Google Android source code released

On October 21, Google officially released Android full source code under the Apache license. Quoting the official site:

"Android is the first free, open source, and fully customizable mobile platform. Android offers a full stack: an operating system, middleware, and key mobile applications. It also contains a rich set of APIs that allows third-party developers to develop great applications."

That's right ! An official, supported, open source distribution for cell phones. :-) Congratulations to everyone who has made this possible !
