Another way of looking at it is as the current evolution of the PDA.


Exactly. Only a year or two ago people were pronouncing the death of the PDA. (At this website, even.) I'd argue that the old view of the PDA was too narrow, and the old OS's were obsolete. Attempts to modernize and expand their domain came in fits and starts, but the popularity of the iPod Touch, and the growth of the tablet device, suggests that PDAs have not yet given way to smart phones. After all, not everyone wants, or can afford, an $80/month phone+data plan.
