Fortune: Apple’s next act: Changing PC buying habits

"Could this endorsement from tech’s hottest company finally put graphics processors on the map for the mainstream? The folks at Nvidia certainly hope so. The day after Apple’s announcement, I caught up with Drew Henry, general manager of Nvidia’s media communications processor business unit, and he was practically gushing.

“I think this is the beginning of the era of visual computing,” he said. “I believe that Oct. 14, 2008 will be remembered as the moment when an inflection point happened.” He said other computer makers have already expressed more interest in the chipss. “You’ll see other designs over the next few weeks and months,” in time for the holiday season, he said, though Apple won the opportunity to release it first.

On Tuesday, the same day Apple had solid earnings largely due to iPhone sales, HP added two new iPaq smartphones to its portfolio.

For the time being, they'll only be available in Europe. And soon to NA.

I think it's only a matter of time until someone else crushes, the blackberry, iphone, g-1 with new innovation.

How about a voodoo branded ipaq?

Apple changes the rules everywhere -
The iphone is a gamechanger. iphone users are very heavy users of data unlike typical cellphone users.

Iphone users use 20x-30x that of the typical cell phone subscriber.
