PDAs are dead, long live the PDA. So I see from the decline of Palm and the rise of the iPhone. But as a PDA user, it leaves me baffled as to what people want, need, and how do I find the product I want. Palm is on the decline because cell phones do enough. They are an adequate address book, MP3 player, and snapshot camera. They lack other features like notepads and 3rd-party apps, but the mass market seems to not mind. And here comes the iPhone. It's not a normal smartphone. By all accounts the actual phone and AT&T service is mediocre. The new approach to voicemail and text messaging looked superb, but no one's mentioned visual voicemail since it launched so maybe it's of no consequence. It's arguably the best iPod ever. With a phone and web browser in for bonus? It's the best mobile web browser to date. That seems to cover for a great many sins It's like a PDA, especially with the upcoming appStore. But it lacks fundamentals such as copy and paste, integrated To Do list, and system-wide search. So what do people need from a digital data keeper? Does anyone want a full address book, or are phone numbers adequate? Does anyone want to manage to do lists (apple doesn't think so)? Or do they just want to listen to tunes and snapshots?
