Garmin Discontinuing PDAs

Garmin iQue 3000 At one point I was a heavy PDA user and was watching the release of Garmin’s Palm OS-based PDAs with built-in GPS (naturally) — the iQue series — with great interest. Times have changed: I’ve gone back to pen and paper, leaving my Palm Tungsten T2 in its cradle, unused for months; and Garmin is slowly but surely getting out of the PDA business: they’ve discontinued all of them except the iQue 3000, which was released earlier this year. (Brighthand, PalmInfocenter). These were always expensive devices; I guess other form factors were better for Garmin’s bottom line.

Previously: Windows Mobile GPS Thingies; New Garmin Gadgetry; Garmin iQue 3200.
