Re: Told you so...
I still don't understand why traditional non-smartphone PDA's like Palm Pilots have disappeared. It is clear that a lot of people want the contacts and calendar function of a PDA, but don't want to pay a monthly data charge...something like a Palm Pilot would be perfect for them.
But anyway, what I really objected to in the post was the statement that the Pre was released 'too late', this is the same thing that people say about Windows Phone 7, or Blackberry OS 7 and all sorts of other things....
But there is no such thing as 'too late' to enter a market, to say that it's 'too late' suggests that the smartphone market is going remain the way it is now forever, until the heat of the death of the universe in a state of permanent stasis....clearly that is poppycock.
Coke and Pepsi have been around for over 100 years, but if you have a good idea, it is still not 'too late' to introduce a new soft drink brand.
