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.

Heck, didn't even think of that. Although, isn't the Slate Intel Atom?

Again - I'm sure Palm has internal designs for a webOS tablet, since the OS is a natural fit for it.

Who cares? It's just a CPU, it only makes difference for the kernel & drivers. The interesting parts of PalmOS are on top of those.

So? webOS is just a specialized Linux distribution that uses many common components: WebKit, SDL, ... .
Worst-case scenario are PDK apps. Those need to be recompiled. Oooh, big deal...
The rest is JavaScript.
