Fighting Words

The Palm operating system for PDAs may be dead (or at least dying) but it seems PalmI the company, is not. A recent Engadget report tells of Roger McNamee's claims that the new Palm Pre will bring the downfall of the iPhone. McNamee is with Elevation Partners, "the Palm-rescuing investment firm'! The rationale - by launching the Pre two years after the i Phone's appearance, all the "early adopters" will be coming off the two-year contracts they signed and be looking for the next funky new thing - the Pre. It might just work - for the initial push - but for the not-so early adopters, the battle to convert them may just depend on features and functionality - and if Apple ever introduces copy and paste functionality for the iPhone and iPod touch!
