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.

This is a very nice turn of events for Palm; the problem Palm had was that they absolutely had to make money with everything they do, with no tolerance for market failures (funded by stable income from other products). HP shouldn't have that problem; they can focus on monetizing on their devices over a longer period of time.
