The Register is running an interesting story suggesting that smart phones could kill off PDAs. The article cites an IDC report that claims that the next generation of "converged mobile devices" will steal market share from, and eventually replace more traditional PDAs.
Given the success of Palm's budget Zire PDA, I suspect that smart phones will have a more immediate impact on the sales of high-end PDAs. Wi-Fi connectivity, multimedia features, and better software could give high-end and mid-range PDAs enough of an edge to stay one step ahead of smart phones, but for how long?
