Monday, August 30, 2004Paul Allen,Internet Entrepreneur, writes, Providing applications and content for PDAs may be a viable business for a few companies; but imagine the opportunities in the mobile phone space, especially as the versatility, bandwidth, and storage capabilities of these devices continue to increase!
In the quarter ended June 30, 2.2 million PDAs were sold worldwide, slightly down from 2nd quarter 2003. Handheld market share leaders:
Contrast that with the 164 million cell phones sold worldwide last quarter. Market share leaders:
Siemens AG (6.4%)
Sony Ericsson (6.4%)
LG Electronics (6.1%)
Cell Phones have won the race hands down - cell phones need to manage to stay ahead in the "Push" tehcnology as well. Just wondering in the age of T-Mobiles and Blackberries and the rate at which convergence is happening, how do we differntiate between PDA's and Mobiles as dictinct units - Leaving aside the technical definitions, from a practical standpoint.
