PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm. It's that big clunky part of your hand that doesn't get any of the attention - the fingers, the thumb especially, get all the glory. Just think, however, what your hands would be like if you didn't have palms, and your fingers just grew straight out of your wrist. Doesn't look so hot now, does it? Well, Palm is supposedly about to go under, if you were to believe the reports. Update: Palm has just announced that the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will become available on AT&T in the coming months.

.... other than an unlikely Hail Mary that saves the marque is Nokia swallowing Palm for webOS. This would have the potential to save both Nokia and webOS. Before you start talking about Symbian and whatever Moblin-linux-thing that Maemo turned into, just stop right there. Neither is going to interest people in an iPhone/Android world.

Nokia could give webOS the shot it deserves. The only other possibility is Blackberry, but a RIM takeover would surprise me almost as much as Palm rising from the ashes would.
Well Nokia or Motorola might be the most likely buyers. WebOS could work well on some mid-range devices, and then MeeGo would be on tablets and high-end smartphones.
