Sometimes a PDA is just a PDA…

I have Palm V and Palm III PDAs. They are pretty simple devices; they don’t play music but they do manage information nicely. I’m one of those people who just want their PDA to do one thing instead of trying to be all things. I’ve bought PDAs for my kids as well. It seems that instead of putting every cool gadget into a PDA, manufacturers are targeting the upper end of the market. However, rather than selling a few more high end devices, a stripped down “PDA ONLY”, could push everyone into the PDA market. It would be interesting to see market stats on this idea.

I also think that cameras on cell phones are a bit silly, and mainly intended to generate extra revenue for service providers, and apparent for companies like Mobog. To contradict myself, I would love a good compact combination PDA and cell phone. Of course, that may already exist in the Samsung SPH-i500 and SCH-i600.
