Palm needed to to have focused on business 2 years ago

Unfortunately, the feeble hardware they kept churning out at during the "Zen of Palm" era was suboptimal for proper business integration.

PocketPC has an obvious advantage called Microsoft - the ultimate lever. Dell is legitimizing PocketPC as an enterprise solution. In July, Gateway will be shipping a 400 MHz PocketPC model with CF and SD slots for $300, again showing that a lot of Palm OS hardware is comparatively overpriced. Microsoft's upcoming OS revision probably won't make a big difference, but next year's new OS will no doubt have the potential for tight integration into enterprise/business infrastructures.

Go to Dell, buy your company's server, workstations, PCs, laptops and PocketPCs all running Shades of Microsoft. Not necessarily the best solution, but one stop shopping is what businesses look for. Palm may eventually be able to cobble together an effective alliance, but they've already wasted too much time.

You don't actually want to buy an overpriced/oversized PDA, running a lame OS, from a company that has absolutely no knowledge of PDA development/marketing and no real innovation to show.
You are never going to stop foolish consumers from choosing overpriced "Intel inside" Dells over superior alternative machines. But PDA users tend to care more about what do they use and carry around everyday than the odd desktop "what-do-you-mean-there-are-computers-without-Windows?" user.

>PocketPC has an obvious advantage called Microsoft.
Nothing can beat Java's momentum.

Many feel Palm's hardware - not PocketPC - is overpriced. Palm's "innovation" has produced a series of PDAs over the past several years that could most kindly be described as "boring". The Tungsten line represents the first bit of actual innovation seen from Palm in a very long time.

What a rebel you are. Some day you Apple/Linux/BeOS/Commodore VIC 20 geeks will eventually realize that the real world (the "foolish consumers" you disparage) cares more about mundane things like the standardization and simplicity of "Intel inside" Dells than they do about trying to be different by eschewing big bad Intel/Microsoft.

Nothing can beat Java's momentum.

Momentum? What momentum? Is this the New Physics where Momentum = Hype + (Dreaming x Marketing BS)? "Foolish consumers" already leery of the empty promises served up by Java on the desktop will believe that Java is the Next Big Thing for PDAs when it actually delivers real world apps that serve real world functions. And don't run in slow motion. Now that Palm has finally been forced to move beyond 33 MHz processors, Java will be given the opportunity to fall flat on its face in a whole new platform. We're waiting...
