A switch in smartphone race

Palm and Microsoft have switched roles in their battle to control the handheld market. The former is pushing more expensive models while the latter is pushing less expensive ones. The battle is for control of the cellphone market too. “Both PalmSource and Microsoft believe that sometime in the next few years, nearly every handheld device will have wireless capabilities built in.” So far PalmSource has stayed ahead by betting that consumers aren’t ready for PDA/cellphone combinations, but neither company has a clear advantage says the piece.
