    The point is to make money. They don't have to kill the Iphone to make money. I'm sure they wouldn't mind killing the Iphone, but that's not even practical- Apple's penetration into the market, combined with the brand loyalty of many of its users almost guarantees that they will continue being a main player in the "smartphone" market. Palm knows this, which is why they've said that they don't want to or need to kill the Iphone.

    Both platforms, and many others, can exist and be profitable in the same space. The whole "_____ killer" thing is pretty played out and mostly a media creation, IMO. I don't think that any one platform will completely dominate, and I think that's a good thing for the consumer.

    I think this was closed by Dieter and me at the same time but it seems it has gotten back on track in a civil manner too... I am ok with it being productive and on track. Dieter might re-close it... Oddly enough you can talk about the same thing over and over and get productive chatter about it. Interesting,
