HP is buying Palm for $1.2 billion

Besides the Palm Pre, i don’t think any other Palm devices have been competitive lately. I hope this HP-Palm marriage revitalizes what Palm products used to be years ago, when we would call any smartphone looking device a “Palm.” With the new developements with the  Android, Blackberry, and Apple applications, Palm is going to have to compete with some major players.

““Palm’s innovative operating system provides an ideal platform to expand HP’s mobility strategy and create a unique HP experience spanning multiple mobile connected devices,” said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP.”
