"Ed Colligan, chief executive of Palm (that's the company which
sells the Palm and Treo handhelds, which run PalmOS and Windows
Mobile), says of the rumours of Apple's iPhone: 'We've learned and
struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent
phone... PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They're not
going to just walk in.' (See John Gruber's analysis: 'I'm not sure
what I like best about it... Is it the way he describes Apple as
'PC guys'? As in like, These guys just make computers, they don't
understand the nuances of user interface and experience design,
especially with regard, to, uh, handheld consumer electronics.
Nope, no handheld consumer electronics expertise at Apple. By the
way, let me show you how my Treo can play MP3s! Or is it the fact
that Palm is using Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS on some of its
Treo phones? Apple, they're just 'PC guys,' but Microsoft, they're
connoisseurs of elegant UI design, apparently...')
