Yep, Sony may still be 160,000 units behind HP, but as Unstrung's granny used to say, "It's got a fair wind in its sales." [Ed: Groan!]
Passing it on the way down is poor old Handspring Inc. We won't tell you what our granny says about such a performance -- it's unbecoming of someone of her years.
Anyway, check out the table below for a stats-fest.
