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.

In Google's case, they'd own a company that can start building/selling phones directly with relatively good tech. The patents are a large bonus.


Exactly.

WebOS' ideas and technologies could be integrated into Android, and Google could develop the Nexus One II (euh) in-house. And get a boatload of incredibly valuable patents.

Makes a lot of sense.

Yeah, but Google doesn't want to support smartphone hardware, or pretty much anything for that matter, hardware-wise at least. We've already seen that with complaints and support for the Nexus One being bounced back-and-forth between Google and HTC.
