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.

Im an android fan but i can say without a doubt webos as it stands now is THE BEST mobile os available right now
my wife and kids all have pres and i had to do little or no configuring or teaching them how to navigate the ui they "just got it". The card metaphor is excellent especially for multitasking. My hope is that HP leaves the PALM brand intact and only supports them financially
I hope to see more phones from palm. But i also hope hp pushes palm to release a tablet (arm powered) with webos.
I swore i wouldnt buy another hp device because of their horrid power supply connectors but if they let palm be independent then i wont mind buying a device from them even if hp gets the profits in the end.
