Engadget has an open letter to Palm with a ton of great ideas for how to restore Palm as a leader. Here are some of my favorite bits:
- You guys got handhelds right when everyone else, including Apple, was struggling to figure it out.
- Get thin - Three words: FIGURE IT OUT. If HTC, Apple, and Motorola can offer thin (and we mean friggin' thin) smartphones, you can too.
- YOU NEED TO MAKE THE PHONE LOOK NICE.... How have you failed to see that innovative and engaging design is necessary to win (or even compete) in the mass-market consumer cellphone world?
- we do, honestly, want you to make it through this thing. We want to love Palm like we loved it in the old days, and know somewhere, deep down, you've got some fight left in you.
