The death of Palm?


I've always been a Windows Mobile user (aka Pocket PC), so I may be biased. However, according to this PC World article, it looks like Palm got rid of 200 workers this week. What does this mean about the future of this company?

Medical professionals (especially medical students) have traditionally tended to favor the Palm OS because of the availability of medical applications. However, the recent trend seems to be towards the iPhone and even the BlackBerry for those who check their e-mail frequently. Of course, I still use Windows Mobile and I have no plans to change anytime soon. Will Android put the end to Palm?
