View Full Version : LG, what will you hope they do?

LG is the newest company to make Palm OS handhelds. So far, we have no rumors of what kind of handheld they are making (that I know of). What do you think the new LG handhelds or most likely smartphones will be like (or hope will be like)? A Clie type smartphone would be nice (stuck in the past http://www.1src.com/forums/images/smilie/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif).

Paying attention to how they have released models and what they lack in their product portfolio, I would garner than we would see a device like the Clie UX series with an integrated phone compoent to compete against other communicator style devices. And then a few palmOS feature phones (similar to teh GSPDA M68) with a full smartphone that would go against teh Treo 650. I doubt we would see more than two devices announced when they fnially do announce a device though.

[QUOTE=Antoine] Clie UX series with an integrated phone compoent to compete against other communicator style devices.

Hi Antoine,
That's would be great. I always found the smartphone screens too small.
I'm sure the will include a built in digicam too.

I too would love to see a UX-style (Clamshell/Tablet device) released with GSM/GPRS built-in. :) This would be the ultimate device.

I do not expect to see PDAs at all yet expect to see various cellphones with integration to LG's HomNet product family (home appliances controlled through internet). This may not be available in the US but I can see it taking off in other markets.

Wait, you don't think LG will make PDAs right now, or ever?

If your answer is right now, I agree.

If your answer is ever, why the heck do you think PalmSource signed them for?

PalmSource (not Palm, formerly PalmOne, formerly Palm) signed with LG. What LG wants to do with the Operating System is up to them. Palm has nothing to do with it, unless they buy PalmSource.

They paid to be able to use it, right?

They could use it on a cell phone like a Treo

Why even try to compete with the Treo? Unless you make a much thinner version with a better camera.... ;)

My guess would probably be a SmartPhone... Though, a vanilla PDA would be nice of course.

It really makes me wonder if they'll just pull another "Sony?"

Their main market has never been PDAs... Neither was Sony's. Thus, going for vanilla PDAs, I wonder how they'd do.. It might be too risky to jump into that market you think? That is, if they were watching Sony?

Among other things, I know them largely for their appliances, monitors/TVs, phones and notebooks and IBM's ThinkPads.

Thus, I probably sit in the boat that they'll use it for their phones. Time will tell...
