Why the handheld market isn't dead yet
At least according to this BargainPDA editorial, despite shrinking sales numbers the handheld market isn't dying yet.
Any smartphone worth the name is far more a handheld computer than it is a cellular phone. To say that smartphones will replace handhelds is like saying that two-door sedans will replace cars. Even if, tomorrow morning, every device shipped with a cellular radio, the handheld computing market would still exist. It might look a little different. But then again, it might not.
And it would be so easy: to "rescue" handhelds all we'd have to do is to abolish all artificial categorizations differentiating between handhelds and smartphones.

Really, who cares? Let the consumer decide whether the handheld is dead or not. All this scientific talk around the demise of handhels makes me *yawn*.
