Software House today announced the 3rd Annual Spb Pocket PC Survey. Every year
it helps to gather and process the information about the current Pocket PC
community's status and compare it to the previous survey results.
The first two surveys, conducted in 2004 and 2005, provided priceless
information about the whole Pocket PC community and had a great response. This
year the survey should show even more quantitative and qualitative changes in
the community concerning rapid Pocket PC market growth, which will define the
subsequent condition of the branch. According to the figures of the year 2005
the Pocket PC market increased by 75.1% and continues to grow.
Survey, conducted in September 2004, provided extensive and priceless
information to the whole Pocket PC community and had a great response. The
Second Annual Spb Pocket PC Survey helped to compare the two-year results and to draw a conclusion about the Pocket PC market evolution.
The Second Annual
Pocket PC Survey conducted in 2005 uncovered the most important changes in the
whole Pocket PC community:
- Users have three times more phone editions than a year ago
- HP iPAQ lost almost a half of its market share in connection with the
growing number of Dell Axim and phone edition devices
- The average storage card size is 1.16 GB, which is 3.5 times more than a

important thing than games now
The most interesting question is - what changes are expected this year?
