Handspring To Miss Revenue By Half!

from the something-went-wrong dept

Ok, if you’re in business, you should have some basic idea of how much you’re going to make in a quarter. To have that estimate get cut in half over the course of one month suggests that some very bad decisions were made. Something has definitely gone wrong for Handspring. A month ago they said they would bring in $120 million this quarter. Now they’re saying $60 million. Ouch.

Re: inkling

I would hope that our economy isn’t based on Handspring devices. However, general consumer confidence is probably waning… But who knows? Maybe the handheld market is saturated. I mean, how often do you need to upgrade your PDA? It’s not like they’ve doubled the speed of PDA processors or anything….
