Times have been tough for Palm (PALM ). Growth of handheld-computer sales has stalled, low-price rivals running Microsoft's (MSFT ) Pocket PC software threaten its core markets, and the company's stock price has fallen below 75 cents. But both halves of the beleaguered company--software and hardware--are fighting back.
PalmSource, the company's software unit, has released the first fundamental overhaul of Palm's operating software since the Pilot began shipping in 1996.
Corporations thus far have only bought a fraction of the PDAs sold worldwide, but Gartner Dataquest analyst Todd Kort expects that to change real soon. But if companies don't establish clear guidelines for employees when handing them PDAs, handhelds could quickly become the company's biggest problem.
