Will it be a Palm Christmas?

As the holiday season approaches palm manufacturers prepare for the already booming market to continue growing. International Data Corp. expects a 55.9% expansion in the world of personal digital assistants (PDA) this year.

In the course of this competition, the consumer wins out.
