Smartphones will kill off PDAs – IDC

Smartphones will kill off PDAs – IDC
Quote: “IDC’s analysis: “From mobile phones to converged mobile devices, which combine the data capabilities of PDAs with the voice communication capabilities of mobile phones, competing device types will draw buyers away from traditional handheld devices.”"
Comment: Mobile phones are expanding functionality almost monthly – camera, PDA, MP3 player, etc. It looks as if the cell phone will become the centerpiece of a mobile economy. It’s interesting that Microsoft has yet been unable to penetrate this market with it’s operating system…
