This C|Net article brings good news: Handspring's Visor Deluxe was the top handheld sold in retail during June with 25% market share. Runners up were the Palm Vx followed with 16% and the Palm IIIxe with 13.6%.
Palm's problems with component shortages have benefited Handspring. "Just about everything is severely back-ordered with the exception of Handspring," said Matt Sargent, an analyst with ARS. "Palm is still severely back-ordered across its product line. The Pocket PC guys can't get off the ground...The timing is perfect for Handspring."
