    Notice that they said MS owned 11% of the market in 2000? Why don't they tell you what they own now?.......

    It's just another manipulation of numbers, palm is still selling more than MS.

    MS Big Business machine will throw everything in to bundle as it really does not cost much. Anything to kill competition. Pretty soon, we will all be assimilated to the PPC world and no one will complain how bad Treo was or TC or even Pa1mOne.

    A research is usually paid for by an interested party. Then it is used for publications as gospel by consultants and "disinterested" third party companies. This one way to divide and conquer.

    They tell you that MS has gone from 11% in 2000 to 40.2% this past quarter.

    If you really look at the math in this story you would see that Palm has actually increased it's lead over MS in the past years (including this one). This is merely the first year that MS sales are almost equal to Palmone's. Take this example...

    Brett and Derek both sell books. In the first year Brett sells 89 books and Derek sells 11. In the next year Brett sales 75 books and Derek sells 25. The next year Brett sells 60 and Derek sells 40. This year Brett sells 51 and Derek sales 49. Although Derek has closed the gap in annual sales he still failed to sale as much as Brett and he still has years of beating Brett before he will truly dominate the market. Bretts total books sold is 275 to Derek's 125.

    This holds true because they are selling items that stay in the use after the year they are sold. If they were selling bananas then Palmone should be very worried. Since they are not, Palmone merely needs to make a few tweaks to hold or continue to increase the annual sales lead.
