New Palm Ad Focuses On BlackBerry Woes

Palm is looking to capitalize on RIM’s recent outages with a new online promotion on their site. The ad proudly proclaims, "Palm smartphones include voice, e-mail, text, Web, calendar, and contacts. And most importantly, uptime. Connect to your Microsoft Exchange Server. No third-party servers and no nationwide blackouts."

RIM has seen critical success with their BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry 8800 devices, forcing Palm to play catch-up. This may very well change when Palm releases the much anticipated Treo 800w, rumored to introduce a much needed new form factor. No official word yet from Palm on the Treo 800w, though many expect an April timeframe for the release.
