Sony looks like is not believing any more in the PDA market.
Probably they realized the missed opportunity in developing
something more important for their core business... a serious
I also think that PDA are going to be absorbed by smartphones
like the Treo 600 or the Sony Ericsson P900.
Anyway here is the news:
"Sony said Tuesday that it is scaling back its Clie handheld line,
a move that will see the company exit the U.S. and European
markets for PDAs.
The consumer electronics giant, which entered the PDA
(personal digital assistant) market in the United States
with its Clie in August 2000, plans to continue to sell
Clies in Japan. But it will wind down production and
exit the U.S. and European markets later this year, as
it re-evaluates the handheld market, Sony spokeswoman
Kelly Gaffney said."
