It was a very interesting read for me as he talks about Palm OS and Windows Mobile music making.
When these devices was used I was living in the Caribbean Jungle outside a village of about 150 people with an access of two telephones and electricity that was coming and going.
So for me to read the article was to read about forgotten history that never was part of my consciousness, and guess that it also holds true if you are young enough.
But what is interesting for making music on Android is that it gets mentioned in the article the existence of a program that makes it possible to run Palm OS applications on Android and that there is existing some pretty funky applications for making music.
So if you want to find some old school hand held freshness it is definitively worth to check out.
The program that makes it possible to run Palm OS apps is called Style Tap and is relatively expensive but then you get access to a lot of applications that is for free and possible to encounter around the internet.
So here is the link to the article:

It is an interesting read you will not regret it...
