Battle of the Handhelds

Brighthand is talking about a possible two horse race in the handheld market. Apparently HP and Dell may soon be the only prominent players in the marketplace. The printer scene also seems likely to head this way with HP and Dell turning out to be prominent players as well. Although, Lexmark, Cannon, Xerox and Minolta seem to be putting up a good fight.

The last time I went shopping for an inkjet, I decided to settle for the cheapest printer solely because of the high costs of the cartridges. Infact, I could buy a Cannon printer for the cost of an HP inkjet cartridge.

Talk about customer lock-ins.
