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.

And like that, HP is a major player in the smartphone market. Now they can make the hardware and the software and deliver a seamless experience. If they're smart, they'll hire someone to come up with some sexy designs and make certain they get something great to market within a year.

AFAIK the first attempt of HP at a smartphone was when it parterned with Nokia to modify the 200LX into the bulky OmniGo 700LX as a partner device and dock for the Nokia 2110, which I speculated Nokia then perfected into the very first 9000 Communicator.
