Palm Slashes Staff…. Are Their Days Numbered?


It actually made me sad when the news that Palm is laying off up to ten per cent of its staff and cutting some product offerings hit Valleywag. Palm used to have a rather nice handheld OS and I have owned several Palm products over the years. But increased competition and increased focus in terms of churning out Windows Mobile OS devices has put Palm OS into the position of being a distant also ran. To be fair, there are rumblings of a new OS coming. But it may be too little, too late for Palm.

Given that the smartphone market is basically made up of Apple, RIM, Google OS, and Windows Mobile, I doubt there’s room for another company in this market. Palm’s days may be numbered.
