    Palm Powered Devices Have Less Support Problems
    Posted By: Ryan on Monday, December 22, 2003 3:54:39 PM
    A user survey in the December issue of PC World shows that Palm Powered handhelds have fewer support problems and leave their owners more satisfied than Pocket PC devices.


    Palm OS owners had 22% fewer support problems, and were more likely to be highly satisfied than their Microsoft-powered counterparts according to the 32 thousand subscriber respondents.

    PC World wrote: "There's a clear consensus in our survey of handheld owners: Respondents with PDAs that run the Palm operating system had a better time than those running PocketPC-based PDAs. The three companies at the top of the reliability class, Handspring, Palm, and Sony, all use the Palm OS. Meanwhile, companies including HP, Dell, and Toshiba--all of whose PDAs run the PocketPC operating system--lag behind this group."

    Isn't the same true for the MacIntosh? Isn't customer satisfaction generally (as in overwhelmingly) greater for Macs versus X86 PCs? This doesn't seem to have helped Apple get up to a 10% market share though, has it? I wonder how much this effects market share (instead of the effects of price/performance or marketing hype).

    The difference being that Apple's market share has slipped from it's high and the number of programs writen for it have dropped markedly. The market share Apple had before Jobe's left and then after he came back is faily large. I think Apple once hand over 15% to under 10% now! Where as the number of palm programs is huge and evergrowing. take care, jay
