    Do you guys LIKE being mined (why didn't they say "skimmed" or "shilled")"

    ``There are probably 15 to 20 million people with Palm OS experience,'' said Gartner analyst Todd Kort. ``It is important to continue to mine that installed base.''

    More consumers are expected to buy mobile e-mail devices in the next few years, growing to 100 million people worldwide by 2009, according to Gartner.

    And more and more phone makers want a piece of that. Nokia's E61, which is out in Europe, and Motorola's Q, to roll out soon, are ``BlackBerry clones,'' Strother said. Nokia and Motorola may be able to produce more phones faster and more cheaply than Palm, he said.

    ``Those guys can produce millions in a month,'' he said. ``It's not to say that RIM is dead, or Palm, but the competition just becomes that much more fierce.''
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    That is one of the worst Gartner report pieces ever. Try doubling that number to 200 million units by 2009. I see teens with PPC6700's and Treos now. When that market takes off there is no stopping it. They are right that whoever can make them faster will win the market no matter what the featureset is. If it is solid, easy to use and can fill the shelves it will be the next iPod.

    I think they are claiming the POS market is confined to a certain group of people, who have already brought Palm products in the past. Most of the market is for upgrade devices (e.g. from T5 to a Treo). This is something Palm is struggling with, and trying to break out from. If you look at Palm total sales, they consistently hover around a million/quarter. The mix of devices change, but its the same people who keep on buying them.
