PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, if we had one of those obnoxious "BREAKING!"-tags on OSNews, this would definitely fit the bill. While we were busy discussing whether HTC or Lenovo would snap up Palm, another major worldwide computer company picked up the Sunnyvale-based mobile outfit: Hewlett-Packard has bought Palm. Updates from the conference call inside.

HP likely bought Palm for their patent portfolio. While Palm's existing presence in the market does help HP get a product out the door faster, i am thinking its more for Palm's IP. Then again, this makes sure right off the bat that HP beats Dell in the mobile phone arena, if based on nothing than existing user base.
