Soon, Palm Inc. will be no more. The company that pioneered the personal digital assistant and made the word "Palm" practically synonymous with any PDA will change its name to palmOne Inc. this fall.

The new name, which was unveiled Aug. 18, will immediately follow the official split of the company's hardware and software units, expected to be completed in the fall.

The unit that develops the Palm operating system will remain as PalmSource Inc., and the operating system itself will continue to be known as Palm.
