HP Talks to the Palm, Buys It

Whoever predicted that Hewlett-Packard Company would acquire Palm was prescient, but also knows HP's history of growth through acquisition. HP's story is that of pretty smart M&As ever since the Compaq merger at the turn of this young century. The Palm buyout is a head-scratcher, though, and we're likely to know pretty soon whether this was another genius move or a hands-down blunder. I wonder if HP will help me revive my dead Palm VII once the deal goes through?

If you have a Palm Pre, like someone I know, tell us what you think of the acquisition. And do tell us what you think of your purchase. How well does it do what you want it to do? What's lacking? Comments here or via e-mail.
