Access buys PalmSource


Acquisition is in the air with the announcement that Access Co., Ltd., a Japanese company, has acquired PalmSource for over $320 million.  Access is the company behind the Netfront browser technology and apparently they wish to broaden their reach in the OS segment.  PalmSource has been beset with trouble since Palm spun the OS division off into a separate company who recently announced they would be licensing Windows Mobile from Microsoft.
