Yes, there is:

However, I tried to figure out what they're using for about ten minutes and
couldn't. At that time, my curiosity has disappeared. It's clearly what you
said, Palm-like with mostly closed stuff, no emphasis on community
involvement and lots of buzzwords. I couldn't even sort out what type of
packing (if any) they were using in the OS.

Can't say I'm worried, other than it's Yet Another Mobile OS.

Yeah, I was being ironic. It just amazes me that some companies still have
the NIH Syndrome <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_Invented_Here>.
