Overview

Microsoft PocketPC In 2001, PDAs with Palm OS installed enjoyed a market share of about 72 percent, while PocketPC held a meager 15 percent. However, by the fourth quarter of 2004, Microsoft PocketPC and Palm OS were practically tied. With sales of Palm OS devices down, PocketPC-based devices had a market share of 40.2 percent to Palm's 40.7 percent. This is evidence of the growing popularity of PocketPC-based devices, and thus the increased likeliness one will encounter such a device "in the field."
