The kaiser was the worst and best WM6 pocket pc.. lol. I can go on forever as to why it failed, but I can also make an endless list why it was so great."I'm not a member, but I play one on TV..."
Seriously, a great hacker site, but I'm not talented enough (same problem with DIY lazors... ) I do have KaiserTweak installed though
I do have to say that the Kaiser's been my all-time best Mobile/cellphone. The only problem is that I never got used to using the keyboard (preferring the stylus instead) and so I'm fed up with it's thickness. The Desire's about as thick as my Blackberry curve which sits nicely in my back pocket (jeans), inner-pocket (suit), etc. The Kaiser's phat, but it's also fat...
Although I'm no Wallstreet speculator, I think Palm's on it's way out. RIM (Blackberry) has taken a major share [of business] away from them and I don't see them bouncing back to the top...I'm a big fan of the new palm phone the palm Pre.
I stand corrected.it was microsoft that killed palm, not the blackberry...
Hell, I bet you doI love my nexus one.
Well then you won't want to hang out here:...this new 3gs ... please dont bash me...
I stand corrected.
However, Palm's OS (/ webOS) was actually the core of my argument. I don't think the average [educated] buyer is looking so much at the HW as they are on the OS. IMO, the Palm OS is slowly but surely loosing popularity, with, as you noted, OSes like Microsoft and now Android becoming more and more popular. Symbian is also losing customer share, although they are still leaders (for now...):
"In the number of "smart mobile device" shipments, Symbian devices are the market leaders. Statistics published in February 2010 showed that the Symbian devices comprised a 47.2% share of the smart mobile devices shipped in in 2009, with RIM having 20.8%, Apple having 15.1% (through iPhone OS), Microsoft having 8.8% (through Windows CE and Windows Mobile) and Android having 4.7%. Other competitors include webOS, Qualcomm's BREW, SavaJe, Linux and MontaVista Software."
I'm not sure how webOS will fare against the competition, but are those 15 years of exisiting PalmOS apps compatible with webOS...?
Hell, I bet you do
Well then you won't want to hang out here:

are those 15 years of exisiting PalmOS apps compatible with webOS...?
saw on the news last night while these are hard #s on users Microsoft vsit was microsoft that killed palm, not the blackberry.. the blackberry's feature and software list is about as long as this thread... while palm being around for over 15 years has a list of hundreds of thousands of applications you can get for your palm.. I mean hell, my palm is a universal remote control that I can use on literally any IR device...
Although everyone wanted windows mobile on their phones.. I mean after all, we have windows at home, why not have it on the phone too.. should put in in my bathroom scale, my toothbrush, my mp3 player, my alarm clock, my television and my microwave. Mac has been trying for YEARS to compete with that and while they have been a constant competitor, probably 10% of computer owners use macs.
