It’s sad when a company or their products fail because inevitably it means it’s the end of the road for a legacy of other products that were developed along the way. Since HP bought Palm and their PalmOS successor, WebOS, their decision to end development in WebOS and WebOS products means the end of the road for the evolution of Palm too.
That’s sad because PalmOS based products were years ahead of anyone else at the time, and made the PDA and crossover PDA to smartphone market viable (who uses the term PDA anymore?).
I had a number of Palm devices, starting from a US Robotics Palm Pilot, a Palm Pilot III, Palm V, and a Palm VII – for their time they were awesome devices.
