  1. I remember working at Circuit City when Palm Pilots ruled this market and how I would have loved to have one. But now compared to the systems used today I can’t help but think how clunky, slow and difficult those devices were.

  2. This is interesting. I never heard of Palm OS. Can you provide a little bit more information on Palm OS?

  3. Robert Chambliss

    Is it possible that one day apple will open up its mobile os to let users create a more ‘personal’ experience for themselves?

  4. I used to have a Blackberry and the OS took some getting used to. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much in their app market either.

  5. I bet Sir Timothy Berners-Lee has an android phone

  6. Thank you so much I personally like iPhone but android phones are respectable to

  7. I’m using symbian phones from atleast 10 years, it’s great OS ever made

Please provide feedback; it is a gift.
