Comments on: Report: 64 Million Smartphones Shipped in 2006

Canalys's latest worldwide smart mobile device report says that global shipments of all smart mobile devices rose 30% year-on-year in Q4-06 for a total of 64 million smartphones shipped in 2006. Their market estimates show that Nokia, RIM, Motorola and Palm each held onto a place among the top five worldwide smart mobile device vendors in Q4 2006, but some positions changed. Nokia retained its lead, while RIM moved up a place into second, nudging ahead of Motorola. Palm remained in fourth, while Sony Ericsson broke into fifth place for the first time since Q2 2004, thanks largely to shipments of FOMA devices in Japan. Its EMEA smart phone shipments were also considerably higher than in previous quarters thanks to the arrival of new models.

By the chart, Palm dropped from 2nd place in Q4 2005 to fourth place in Q4 2006. No?

IDC Report

So is it safe to say organizers aren't dead as the IDC report from Feb. 8th suggests? But rather people prefer organizers with celluar radios?

Agreed. I have always thought that all of this 'the sky is falling...' cynicism about the death of the pda / organizer is completely absurd. It is identical to the early mid nineties with desktop PCs. Back then, i don't recall people saying 'PCs are dying!' just because they got internet capability. It's the same thing. The only difference is that you can't upgrade a PDA to cellular capability in the way that PCs could be upgraded to add internet connectivity - so u buy a new one.
