The End of an Era?
Just a Thought - So Ends The PDA Fad
It's official: Sony has bowed out of the PDA market.
To many industry watchers, Sony's move is not surprising, if not necessarily expected. Many believe that the PDA as a distinct device has pretty much had its day. It is not surprising because many of the functions found in a PDA can now be found in other devices, like cell phones and iPods. It is expected, to my way of thinking at least, because the PDA's inevitable demise in the form we know today is nothing more than the natural evolution of the device.
When the Newton and Palm devices first came out, I wondered why anyone would use these devices over, say, a paper based organizer. Of course, there was a certain convenience factor with being able to connect the handheld device to a computer, and then sync the information, but the Newton, Palm-based devices, and all Windows CE/PocketPC based devices suffer from the same problem: they were not good enough to completely replace pencil and paper.
