Analyst Says Palm is Screwed

Analyst Michael Walkley of Piper Jaffray says Palm stands to lose most from iPhone's grand entrance into the smartphone market. Walkley told Barons

“With the BlackBerry Curve ramping and iPhone launching June 29th at AT&T, we view Treo as the most impacted by these launches and anticipate even further declines in sell through trends.”

Palm has enough problems on its hand dealing with an obsolete mobile platform and products that are equally outdated. To make matters wose, the company made a failed bet on a brain-dead Linux portable that it hoped would spark significant sales growth, which isn't going to happen.

Palm is running out of cash and ideas. Unless the company can pull a breakthrough product out of its hat soon, they won't be in this market much longer.

Steve Jobs Is "In It To Win It" with iPhone

Dan Farber over at ZDNET blogs makes some interesting points about Steve Jobs throwing his full weight, and reputation behind the iPhone. As Dan points out, if initial iPhone sales aren't blockbuster, as the hype machine would have us expect, the result may end up tarnishing the company's image and stock. It could even result in shrinking Steve's mock turtleneck wardrobe, and just think of the impact that would have on future keynotes!
