    You can keep using your Palm OS apps on your new Palm Pre!


    Yes, it’s true and it’s official – you will be able to run Palm OS apps on the new Palm Pre. How? The name is Classic. Announced at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco, MotionApps will release "Classic", an emulator for Palm OS that will run most of the Palm OS apps on webOS.

    From Palm:

    Palm OS Emulator Application

    Palm also announced that MotionApps ( is creating an emulator application that will allow most Palm OS applications to run on webOS devices. The application, called “Classic,” will be available for purchase when the Palm Pre™ phone becomes available from Sprint in the first half of 2009, and gives users peace of mind as they transition to Palm’s new webOS.

    Since Palm OS applications running in Classic won’t be able to leverage core webOS functionality, Palm is working with partners to ensure that popular Palm OS applications are made available on the webOS platform and are optimized to take advantage of everything it has to offer. In the meantime, the MotionApps Classic application will allow customers who have invested in the Palm OS platform to use Palm OS applications they’ve grown to love and depend upon on their new webOS devices. “
