We’ve been wondering for a while what is up with Palm.com domain, and it’s looking more and more certain that HP sold the brand and trademarks to Alcatel Onetouch.
Looks like they’re going to put the Palm name on cheap-ass Android crap.
Like wiping your ass with the Mona Lisa.
They may have bought it to form a “luxury” division. This would make sense. FWIW wasting money on Palm brand just to bury it by placing “Palm” logo on crap hardware does not make any sense at all.
Lenovo’s acquisitions come to mind, and while quality of ThinkPads degraded quite significant lately, they are still better then average laptops on the market.
