Rich Luhr has an article full of bad news for PDA manufacturers at AlwaysOn. When I no longer had a company to buy my PDA for me, I stopped using one and other than not having something to play with in meetings, I haven't really missed it. My phone has all my contacts and making appointments by email is more convenient anyway. I don't think that the trend to smartphones mentioned in the article means that everyone will soon be carrying around a Treo or some other Palm-powered device. People still want small, convenient phones first and will quickly shed features if they interfere with that base functionality.
