The PALM PILOT Story — Crossing The Chasm & Business Strategy Lessons
In the early 1990s, a new product category called PDA gained traction among corporate executives.
Most of the companies who launched PDAs saw their device effectively as a handheld PC, capable of handling some of the office-related tasks of a corporate executive. Every basic PDA had an address book, notepad, and an application for appointments. A few PDAs offered many more applications like spreadsheets, word processors, financial management software, clock, calculator, and games.
