The partnership with PalmSource will also see the two companies work to ensure integration of NetFront with future versions of Palm OS, said an Access spokesperson.
Plug-ins that add support for playing MP3 audio files, MPEG4 video and a Java Virtual Machine are also available, according to an Access white paper.
Access is best known for its Compact NetFront browser, which is built into every I-mode cellular handset sold in Japan by NTT DoCoMo and also handsets sold by NEC for overseas versions of the I-mode service.
The company's embedded browsers can also be found in 150 commercial products including digital televisions, set-top boxes, game consoles and car navigation systems, the spokesperson said.
The deal with Palm is part of a focus the company has recently put on the PDA market and follows a similar tie-up with Sharp announced in May. That deal will see NetFront become the default browser on Sharp's range of wireless PDAs.
Also this year, the company has released versions of NetFront browser for the Symbian and Pocket PC platforms.
The Pocket PC version can be downloaded free from Access' Web site.
