    Blackberry set to expand lead in Smart Phone market!

    Advertisement





    Palm warned last week that its first-quarter revenue would miss an earlier forecast, saying it sold fewer Treos than anticipated. The company said revenue will come in at $354 million to $356 million, compared with the $380 million to $385 million it forecast in June, the company said.

    In smart phones, form factor is just as important as features. RIM's new Pearl includes 64 Mbytes of flash memory, a digital camera, a multimedia player with a stereo headset jack for music files, and an expandable memory slot--a BlackBerry first. (Both Palm and RIM have made the point--whether or not IT managers approve--that users want one device for both work and play.) The cell phone-like Pearl weighs just 3.1 ounces, making it RIM's smallest BlackBerry. It supports up to 10 E-mail accounts and instant messaging clients from AOL, MSN, and Yahoo, plus BlackBerry Maps software. -- Read More (the numbers say more than the article itself.)
