Palm CEO: Apple won't dominate handset sector

Reports are circling the Internet of Palm's CEO Ed Colligan's remarks about Apple's supposed foray into the mobile phone business with the launch of the mythical iPhone handset next year. For the most part Colligan was not concerned about Apple's possible entry into the smart-phone market. "We've learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone,'' Colligan said. "PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They're not going to just walk in.'' Colligan's two cents about the iPhone: Apple might offer their phone with WiFi technology. The company will also probably distribute the phone in Apple stores rather than through carriers' retail outlets.
