The World NEXT ends 



Is it too late for Palm? Looks like it to me, but I've been surprised before....


Palm Promises To Unveil All That You've Been Waiting For At January CES

Yesterday I received the above invitation from Palm to attend a press event at the forthcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January 2009 which the company claims will finally allow me to "see all that Palm New-ness you've been waiting for"...

I have to admit that I'm not entirely sure whether to feel mildly excited or utterly bored by Palm's event - we've been waiting for so long and let down so often in the last couple of years that it's hard to even imagine that Palm could "magically" transform itself at the eleventh hour.

Palm will categorically not even hint at what exactly all the "New-ness" it will unveil at CES might be but people at the company assure me that "it will definitely be worth it", that "it will not disappoint" and that "it's not a new color for the Centro"...

Nice to see someone else interested in the future of Palm. :-) Maybe those 2 guys that Palm snagged from Apple have cooked up something amazing. I certainly hope so, as I have been a long time user of Palm (currently own a Treo 755p)and would love to see something "great" from them.

Palm who? With Blackberry, iPhone, Symbian, AND Windows Mobile, 3 out of 4 of which now have enterprise email integration capabilities, Palm has an uphill climb. With a lot of consumers stuck in contracts it's only harder.

Even if they come out with their own "Notes 8" that revolutionizes the product line, a huge segment of the market has written them off, much like they had Notes, and isn't listening anymore.

Can it be done? I hope so (on both counts).

@1 - I would as well....

@2 - You make an excellent point that I've thought about a lot: There are many parallels that could be drawn between what Palm has done with it's handsets and what IBM/Lotus have done with Notes/Domino.
