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.

I can see hp releasing a HP Slate device in
8 months or a year with WebOS as the operating system.

If HP does it right .. they could have a very
good tablet device.

Wishful thinking. It looks more likely that Palm will work largely independent instead of tight integration to HP. Most likely Palm will offer more Blackberry style phones with own brand while HP brings high-end phones with Windows Phone 7 OS. This will likely mean HP won't offer WinMo6.5 or Android phones on new markets, instead they push cheap Palm phones. Even if they would integrate Palm it would take years for device that you fantasy come to market. HP has shown very little intrest on ARM style netbooks or slates. More likely they keep pushing high-end slates(over 500 euros) and Windows netbooks using Intel processors.
