"Handspring, the developer of Palm OS-based Visor devices, would present an even greater threat to Palm Pilots if it decided to create Linux-based, Palm-compatible appliances."
"According to Ken Dulaney, research area director at Gartner, Handspring has already taken 25 per cent of Palm's share of the personal digital assistant (PDA) market and would be an even stronger force if it created a cult following based on Linux."
"Palm is under attack. The Pocket PCs have better colour and Palm has been too caught up in its initial public offering," Dulaney told delegates at the Gartner Symposium this week. Palm's strategy to license Palm OS to third parties, such as Handspring, is good but it could backfire if Handspring somehow combined the Palm platform with Linux, he added."
