Everex Dumps WinCE Devices

from the ouch dept

Another company has stopped making WinCE devices. This time it’s Everex, which had a pretty good reputation. If anyone’s not convinced that Microsoft’s attempt to take on the Palm devices has failed, I’m not sure what other evidence they need.

With no Newton Inc and the Newton engineers

it is a slam-dunk (as it were) for the Palm Computing group.

Ok, ok. Really its about 2 things:
1) Price
2) Preformance

The palm wins on price. And the palm preforms as you expect.
WinCE preforms as one has come to anticipate Microsoft products to preform.

But, Bill won’t throw in the towel. He sees the embedded market as being a priority…so CE will still remain. For a LONG time.

Hey, I agree with you. Just for the record, I clearly said that Microsoft was losing against Palm devices. I never said
that CE was going away, and I don’t expect it to at all. But in that one market, it seems to me that they failed big
time. They have been known to come back from things like that, though. However, having a number of OEMs stop
making CE devices is not a good sign at all.
