Dell's already doing their own Android based thing with phones, so that leaves IBM (Lenovo) and HP.... I don't think Lenovo can afford to buy them and hope for market expansion because their laptops aren't all that popular in the consumer market and no one really wants an IBM branded phone. Chances are better for HP to get them and expand into the phone market more. They already have experience with handheld PDA devices and with the popularity of their laptops and new to release Slate pads, it would be a natural progression into what they are trying to do with their market saturation.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

    RIM doesn't need Palm. They are a very rich company and OS6 looks like it'll make some major changes.

    This actually makes me want to see what webos with better hardware can do. Especially a HP tablet.

    Sweet! I wonder how long it will be before we see a 4-way tablet comparo between Apple, Android, Windows 7, and webOS? Also looking forward to seeing webOS on some better hardware.

    The problem is that webOS was built on a shoestring budget and it shows when you look beyond the cute UI. HP better be patient before that OS develops into anything worthwhile.

    I love HP products. I've been buying them for years now. It's going to be interesting to see if HP can turn Palm around.

    Exactly. I don't think Palm could do it justice and maybe HP's money and resources can.

    I would rather have seen HTC buy Palm and ultimately have an HTC-built webOS handset, but I suppose this is good too, especially with HP's brilliant marketing staff.

    However, the biggest kick for me that I'd have gotten from it would've been Apple getting laughed out of court for that suit they filed against them. Apple would never have been able to compete with Palm's patent portfolio.

    Too bad there wasn't a contest on picking the buyer... I could have finally won something. Drat!
