ZDNet reports about a new report from Gartner which claims PDA shipments totaled 3.6 million units in the second quarter of this year. That's a 32 percent jump compared to the same period last year.
The study also found that Windows CE is the operating system of choice for business-minded road warriors. The underlying software accounted for 46 percent of worldwide shipments in the second quarter of 2005, followed by RIM with 23.2 percent of the PDA software shipped. PalmSource's 18.8 percent share rounded out the top three.
These totals do not include smartphones like the Treo 650 and the BlackBerry 7100, but they do include wireless PDAs such as the iPAQ 6315 and Nokia's 9300. More details at ZD Net.
