Anlässlich des Centro-Launch in Australien hatte das APC -Magazin Gelegenheit zu einem Interview mit Ed Colligan.
"... “Centro is our consumer line of products, the start of a product
line to hit that demographic and price point” Colligan says. “Centro
will be strictly Palm OS”.
“Microsoft is the defacto standard in corporate email, and I think they should be the de
facto standard in mobile email. If you have an Exchange server today
you can already get mobile push email without installing a single other
piece of third-party equipment, so it’s pretty easy to deploy. I don’t
believe we could ever create a position in the business community that
competes with Microsoft, it just wouldn’t make any sense.”
That ‘next generation’ Palm OS will slot in between the Centro and
Treo lines under a new ‘prosumer’ brand that’s yet to be decided,
Colligan explains. “We’re going to continue to look at those three line
areas – consumer, prosumer and enterprise. Treo is today more of our
mainstream prosumer product which is extended into the enterprise, but
over time you’ll see some branding work done on the top two to make
sure they’re really well delineated.” ..."
