PDAs are not the way
Authored by: Lechman on Feb 25, '03 01:12:27AM

I owned a Newton and it was awesome. And I don't care what the critics say, it recognized my handwriting just fine. In fact, that's the only feature I wish my Palm had, instead of that awful "Graffiti" - it's like taking a technological step backward. But I don't see how an Apple PDA could ever be a big seller. The iPod was a boon for Apple only because no one had (or has) a better portable mp3 player. But there are already too many PDAs out there for Apple to compete with. Palm has the el-cheapo market solid, and Microsoft has the pro-level high-dollar market locked. As for a larger, tablet-sized PDA? Well, Microsoft is already treading that ground and even they can't get people to buy into it.
By the way, it would be great if Apple would bundle Virtual PC with their Macs to entice the Wintel crowd to switch, but alas, Microsoft has just bought that as well. Think they'd give it up? Not a chance.
