BusinessWeek Online's Charles Haddad believes it would be an ill-fated move for Apple to enter the handheld market, either by creating their own device or acquiring Palm or Handspring. Rather, he believes the company would be better served by focusing on making sure the devices on the market are compatible with desktop Macs. "I wouldn't be surprised if Apple announced sometime in the not-too-distant future an 'iTunes' equivalent of handheld connectivity software. Such software would simplify connectivity with handhelds while expanding their power."
