Palm CentroPalm's next-generation operating system will be finished by the end of the year, according to the company by way of RegHardware.

According to Palm, the Linux-based system software known as "Palm OS II" and "Nova" is "on track" for completion by the end of calendar 2008, with handsets based on the OS to follow in the first half of 2009.

If you recall, Palm announced back in April 2007 that it would develop the next generation of the Palm OS itself. But there have been several timetable extensions along the way, and hopefully this indicates that the company's finally sticking to schedule. Palm's current Palm OS-based smartphones, such as the Centro (review here) run Palm OS 5.4m, known as "Garnet."
