Research in Motion, Apple are currently dominating this market. HTC also has a strong presence with their Windows Mobile and Google Android powered devices.

Palm has been working on their Nova mobile operating system which analysts believe could bring them back to the front row.

The company is expected to showcase this new mobile OS at the ongoing CES. Palm could also display one of the first devices to be powered with new mobile platform.

It is still to be seen if the first of these devices would be aimed at the consumer market or corporate sector.
