“A few months ago, I wrote an editorial asking for peoples’ thoughts on what the next traditional handheld from Palm, Inc. ought to look like.
At that time, I promised to write a followup editorial compiling everyone’s suggestions. I never did this, and I want to explain why: I am now convinced that Palm will never release another traditional handheld. Ever.”
While I have been a user and supporter of Palm’s handhelds for many years, I do agree with Mr. Hardy’s assessment. Palm has been very careful to communicate to their customer base that handhelds were becoming less and less of their business based on sales figures.
