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.

Before they took the easy road..
"The company eventually bridged the gap by licensing Microsoft's Windows Mobile, which debuted on the Treo 700w."

My Treo 600-755p were and are innovative in terms of offering a private suite that is (minus web browsing and new apps) as capable or more capable than even the current set of smartphones on the market.

this articl give a great hint at the role that verizon played though. And for that, I'll never switch to them from Sprint.
