PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Today, the technology world is gripped by what can only be described as a dirty war between iOS on one side, and Android on the other. While the parties in this war fight it out in the US court system, the web has latched onto this conflict like a starved leach to a nice juicy ankle, and this focus on just iOS and Android has had a rather unpleasant side effect. This effect was subtle at first, but now, it's everywhere. Yes, if you were to believe the web, iOS and/or Android invented everything when it comes to mobile operating systems. I will have none of that, and my PDA collection begs to differ too.

IMHO, Palm and Pocket PCs are to iOS/Android what Street Fighter 1 and earlier '1 on 1' fighting games are to Street Fighter 2. Sure, there were some that blazed a trail, but then others came along and did it right ;)

Yeah, I remember those early PDAs, but I do not have a particular fondness for them, just like I don't have a particular fondness for Street Fighter 1.
