PDA is one of those products that can either be perfect or a total failure. The OS and UI usability just isn't there at the moment. Dell does not make and OS and UI and therefore cannot produce anything useful other than a shiny case. So, the headline should be "Dell gives up on trying to make a useful hand held computer." It will take some other company to make the PDA hot again; maybe Nintendo or Apple. It's time to quit milking the Palm Pilot. Remember, Apple did not milk the Walkman; they reinvented it.
