For those of you who have not had a chance to keep up with the news lately. Larry Dignan of Seeking Alpha did an amazing job writing up what I call the “state of the smartphone.”
He basically explains the current situation with Palm, Apple, RIM, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Google, & Motorola. The reason I am mentioning it is because he sums it up really well. In less than a page you walk away with the basics of each companies strengths and weaknesses.
So if you want a clean snapshot of where all the smartphone manufacturers are heading then I recommend reading his article on Seeking Alpha.
