The Treo Will Flop
from the not-good-at-either-thing dept
There is a fundamental problem with PDA/cell phone convergence devices that I’ve discussed before and is clearly laid out in the following article. People want their cell phone to be as small as possible, so they can easily carry it around. At the same time, they want their PDA screens to be as large as possible, so they can accomplish more stuff with it. Combining those two things, makes for a very difficult design. In the end, things like the Treo may end up being bad at both functions. I’d still like to see one and test it out, but it still looks to big to be a phone. I am curious to see how the Danger device gets reviewed once it comes out – as it may suffer from the exact same problem.
