Tue Dec 7, 1999 - 1:54 PM EST - By James Hromadka

As users desire the "anytime, anywhere" benefit that handhelds offer, shipments of smartphones and wireless handhelds will exceed 350 million units by 2003, according to Datacomm Research Company.

Below is one of the conclusions from the press release:

The Palm operating system will remain the clear market leader thanks to 3COM/ís spin off of Palm Computing, Handspring/ís introduction of the Visor PDA, and Handspring/ís development of the Springboard add-on hardware standard. Windows CE devices will find success in specific vertical applications, but are unlikely to catch on with consumers.
