Palm appears to be the latest company jumping on the app store bandwagon. The company today launched its Palm Software Store, which lets users download applications to devices running both the Palm OS and Microsoft Windows Mobile.

The store has more than 5,000 apps and games that can be downloaded and more than 1,000 of its apps are free. Some of the big-name applications include Facebook, Encyclopedia Britannica, Pac-Man, Tetris and Fish Tycoon. More than 1,500 developers have submitted apps to the store.

The Palm Software Store makes its debut only a few weeks before the struggling smartphone maker is expected to debut a new mobile operating system, called Nova. Early reports indicate Palm will launch Nova at the Consumer Electronics Show in January in Las Vegas and perhaps even debut a new device featuring the anticipated new operating system.
