PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Earlier this week, I detailed a number of things Apple could learn from how Palm handles its phones, operating system, and applications. Today, news broke out of the first application rejection from Palm's App Catalog, and from this and Palm's actions surrounding this rejection Apple can again learn a whole lot.

I am glad that the reason is NOT "duplicate app". For iPhone, this app would have been definitely rejected (indefinitely) because it is duplicating the music player.

Only that Apple just approved Spotify…

Edit: Ok, ignore my comment. I see what you mean. Spotify provides access to music not on your device, so you are probably right.

Actually I think you where right to begin with. From what I have heard, the iPhone version of Spotify can store tunes locally (encrypted) for playback at a later time without Internet access.
