    Found this article at yahoo. Funny how the market works, sometimes it's obvious why a device will fail then in another case it's timing.

    For me the Palm Pre was a great device that was upgraded at a glacial pace. The world had moved on, and nobody cares anymore.

    the "death" of some technology sometimes leads to better things.

    market would sure be different if Palm was still in the game.

    BB and RIM are pretty much dead to me, they're not even talked about anymore

    In government they are. Gov takes so long to make any changes because they need to have meets about the meets where they will test a new test product. For enterprise in government, BB is king.

    In the consumer world, RIM is already out the door.
