Palm’s new CEO Jon Rubinstein believes there is sufficient growth in the smartphone market to profitably sustain "three to five players".
He was speaking after announcing "strong and growing" sales of the company’s new Pre handset – with download applications now numbering more than 1 million three weeks after it launched.
So the launch of the Palm Pre is June 6th – and the scene is all set for what is likely to be an exciting summer for the smartphone industry.
Those joining Palm in announcing new – or updated handsets – over the next few months are Apple with an upgraded iPhone and new phones using the Android operating system from Google.
Dell’s plans for entering the smartphone market have gained some more meat.
The world’s second largest PC brand is working with two companies to develop software and hardware for new mobile devices.
Nokia still tops the smartphone market with sales of 60.9 million handsets last year for a total global market share of 43.7 per cent.
But the Finnish phone-maker’s sales grew by just 0.8 per cent and its market share dropped from 49.4 per cent, with rivals Research In Motion (RIM) and Apple taking bigger slices of the smartphone pie.
Palm has announced that Douglas C. Jeffries has been appointed as the company’s Chief Financial Officer.
Previously chief accounting officer at eBay, Jeffries will join Palm in January as replacement for Andy Brown.
The beleaguered handset maker is beset by falling sales as it struggles in the smartphone market.
