When comparing current operating systems for mobile devices, the lack of an useful web browser for Palm OS immediately stands out – all other operating systems have an abundance of browsers available.

Java ports of WebKit recently began to pop up – unfortunately, one of the most promising ones of them(TeaShark) currently crashes on Palm devices according to user reports.

However, the company apparently is aware of the problem and plans to fix it according to this Google Groups discussion:

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, TeaShark is not supporting Palm
devices yet. (neither natively nor through WEME (java))
We will let you know, when TeaShark is available on Palm devices.

Stay tuned!

P.S. In case anyone of you manages to get it running – please send me an email asap!

  1. Well, actually it sort of runs as a midlet, but its slow and the navigation is all whacky.

  2. It crashes on my TX – Reset Doctor reports a “WindowGrapics” something or other error.

  3. On Centro it does run once “high resolution coordinates” has been turned off. Navigation is pure crap though.

  4. Hi,
    as said – they are working on making it better.

    Meanwhile, a big thankyou for everyone who can send me a picture…

    Best regards
