We’re not complete Palm haters here, but we’re called BlackBerry Cool for a reason. We pick our battles with the competition, only taking jabs when it’s warranted. Now, if someone else happens to weigh in with their thoughts on Palm, well, far be it from us to censor them. Our pal Jon Fortt over at the Utility Belt has some solid insight on Palm’s shortcomings in an article lovingly (and obviously) titled The Trouble with Palm and its Treo. You’ll never guess what he talks about.
“Palm’s (PALM) stock tanked about 8 percent Tuesday from $15.37 to just over $14 per share on its news late Monday that its Treo 750 will be late because of carrier issues. That’s got investors (and Treo users) wondering: Is this is just a blip, or is it evidence of a larger problem?
My answer: Both.”
Main reason we’re touching on this is because of all the problems Palm has been having, that leaves an open door for a bigger, stronger company to swoop in like Superman (RIM) and save Lois Lane (Palm). Could it happen? Maybe. So, who of you have experience with Palm and it’s products? Who’ve never laid hands on a Treo and are infatuatingly loyal to BlackBerry – and why? We like to know these kinds of things.
