Palm's new ad campaign is funny

Anyone who has actually tried to use Palm or Windows Mobile to download email on a regular basis is laughing hysterically right now. Blackberry email works reliably 99.9% of the time, except for when RIM is having a nationwide outage of a few hours.

I’ve owned devices on all 3 platforms at one time or another. They each have their strengths and weaknesses. Reliable email is not one of Palm’s strengths by a long shot, and it’s only moderately passable on Windows Mobile. Blackberry blows them both away on that count, even on a “bad” day.

But hey, good luck with that campaign, Palm.
