The PDA analogy doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. PDAs were becoming increasingly popular with businesses with the increasing capacity of cellular service. The BlackBerry was starting to become desirable for consumers. It was only a matter of time when the market would grow, which is more to do with 4G than with Apple. Note Android phones have the highest market share.
