Adobe Systems and Palm Computing plan to integrate Adobe Technologies and Palm software for an assault on the e-book market.

The companies will integrate Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) and the Palm ComputingAE platform, to offer new solutions for the growing electronic-publishing market.

The move will give Palm users access to millions of PDF files already available worldwide, according to the companies.

"This will bring a new world of business and entertainment content to handhelds based on the Palm Computing platform," said Mark Bercow, vice president, strategic alliances and platform development for Palm Computing.
