RELATED TICKERS: AAPL
any techies in the fool please respond.
Is Palm going only going to $20 or $100??
Not like Apple, that's for sure. For North America, the iPhone was the first full-featured smartphone that was easy to use and sleek.
Now that every company has a touchscreen smartphone, the competition in the market is that much harder. Are they bringing anything new to the market, or just a viable alternative to everything that is out there?
It's now a software war in the phone market, and all the big guns (Microsoft, Apple, Google, Intel, RIM) are duking it out.
I'd steer clear of Palm, I think they're competing in a saturated market and you not only need good planning, but a lot of luck too. If the iPhone didn't exist at all, I think Palm would be a lot better off, but the iPhone just seems to be devouring Palm's sector.
Apple soared because of OS X, switching to Intel Processors, the iPod (a lot of luck mixed with good planning later on), and the iPhone - so they're really not relying on a small subset of the tech sector to be successful. Also, I sales of iPods to their younger customers wil translate into more Mac computer sales as these customers grow older and have the income to purchase what some consider a premium computer product.
So you guys are saying to short Palm now?
