Does anyone in the chemical industry still have a Palm? There was a year in the mid-1990s when a few traders were showing them around, but now the Blackberry has dominated the petchem landscape.
Palm is struggling to survive, after its first quarter sales of Palm Pre and Palm Pixi were less than half analysts' expectations, and its market share and share price are tumbling, according to an article on today's FT.com.
Palm's smartphones have faced unbeatable competition from RIM's Blackberry and Apple's iPhone, leaving the company's shares down nearly 60% over the past year.
PS One Europe-based chems trader has already messaged to contradict me: "Well we all use Palm Treos or similar," he says.
