PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're a Palm fan, you might want to look away - or not. Chris Ziegler has written a fantastic article on the short rise and eventual demise of webOS, and with it, Palm. I'm generally not a fan of companies, but I have my exceptions - and Palm is one of them. Correction - Palm was one of them.

...that Palm OS6 "Cobalt" never reached the masses. I had high hopes back in 2003 or 2004. The BeOS/BeIA/Cobalt/PalmSource story is well known here i think, so i won't repeat it here. As a BeOS user i wished Cobalt could have been a "successor" of the good old BeIA/BeOS stuff. But times have changed and the younger generation praises iOS and Android as "revolutions", but the real revolutions for such devices happened -as Thom mentioned- much earlier.
