Speaking of Palm CEO Ed Colligan, now’s a good time to recall his comments from last November, regarding the prospects of Apple’s then-only-rumored entry into the mobile phone market:
Colligan laughed off the idea that any company — including the
wildly popular Apple Computer — could easily win customers in the
finicky smart-phone sector.
“We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how
to make a decent phone,” he said. “PC guys are not going to just
figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.”
