What's Up at Palm?

Interview with Ted Ladd, formerly lead evangelist, Platform Group, Palm, Inc. WBT: Can you tell us a little about the two recent Palm releases - the m100 and the Palm VIIx? TL: Let me answer, if I may, from a platform perspective. (When I say Palm I am including the Palm device business and the Palm licensees team - like Sony, Nokia, Motorola.) Handheld devices right now are separating into two different segments. The first segment is for your grandmother. These are low-cost devices with basic functionality, tried-and-true technologies aimed at people who need handheld computers b... (more)
