Palm revenue drops 47 percent in Q1

Palm Inc. revenue dropped 47 percent in the first fiscal quarter of 2002, compared to a year ago, in the face of slow demand and increased competition.

For the first quarter, which ended Aug. 31, Palm reported revenue of US$214.3 million, with a pro-forma net loss of $38.7 million, which translates into a loss of $0.07 per share. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial/First Call predicted the handheld vendor would lose $0.09 per share for the period.

That revenue figure is down from the $401 million the company reported in the first quarter of 2001. Palm's pro-forma net income in that quarter was $23.9 million, or $0.04 per share.

Palm shipped 750,000 devices during the quarter, about half what it shipped in the year-ago quarter, Palm said.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
