More hardware makers defect from CE

Compaq is considering joining Sony, Philips, Everex and other hardware vendors opting out of the Windows CE platform.

In addition, Sony has revealed plans to license the Palm operating system for use in its next generation of handheld devices.

While Palm-based devices appear to be gaining in popularity – now accounting for about 75 percent of the handheld market -CE appears to be falling behind, despite Microsoft’s efforts to push the lightweight OS.
