Palm finally sinks, acquired by HP for $1.2 billion

In an unexpected move today, HP announced it would buy ailing handset-maker Palm for $1.2 billion, a 23% premium. The decision has already been approved by the boards of both companies and will give HP a new strength in the mobile computing market -- an unquestionable bonus with tablet-fever on the rise.

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

Awww. I never used Palm products, but I like them as a company. The first touch screen device I touched EVER was a Palm. It was 8 years ago. I was ten. I grew to like that small black-and-white screen that need charging every so often. Of course, that was the only Palm I used, and I loved Windows Mobile the moment I saw it.

Nevertheless, Palm was my first touch. And I hope HP doesn't dissolve that brand name.

If all goes well, WebOS and the Palm brand will continue on, and if they do well enough under HP they may be able to break away again like Palm did originally.
