Engadget are reporting (Virtual Palm OS on your Nokia N-Series tablet — hoozah! – Engadget) that a Virtual Machine of the Palm OS developed by Access is available to run on a Nokia 770 and later.  As a free solution, this is great news as it will allow the tablet to be to move closer the the PDA role many want to use their N770 for (there is personal organiser software out there but the Palm OS offers a lot more in terms of Windows integration) as well as a lot of robust product standard solution software.

The question has to be, what is the price of the Virtual Machine in terms of performance overhead.

If the usability and performance of the virtual machine is good then this can only help Nokia try and poach more Palm OS users to the N series.
