I think there is NO future in handhelds, and P1 agrees, which is why they bought Handspring. So I give their management credit for heading in the right direction, even if not fast enough.

    There is no future in handheld, because P1 can't compete. Everybody else is growing.

IDC says Microsoft should take over the top spot at the end of this year, with 45.9 percent of the market, compared to 45.1 percent for the Palm OS, and grab a 51 percent share by 2006.

    Palm is arse out.

    I certainly hope Palm(whatever) wakes up. I would hate to see MedicoreSoft to win the handheld/smartphone war. I cannot imagine giving Greedy Billy G more of my money.

    Competition is good.
    Choice is good.
    Treo 600 is good.

    It would be nice if Palm published a real plan including their Treo product family. It would be nice if Palm allowed us "evangelists" to become early adopters of new products. It would be nice if Palm would spend some dough to advertise the products.

    I love my Treo...
