This is a very good deal for all involved, Palm get the money to develop WebOS they desperatly need, and HP get the best Mobile OS (absolutly hands down) to throw into tablets, and also a way back into the very valuable smartphone market which.
Just think how awesome a WebOS tablet would be.
Although I wish Palm and their WebOS the best, I can't help but feel that Palm in the hands of another company with a more impressive portfolio in smartphones would have been better. Let's see what HP will do with this.

1.2 Billion is too much money though for Palm, to me that is overpriced less then a billion is what I would have believed they were worth. Enough of the ranting though Palm will finally get the funding they need to do the things that they want to create. I hope they make the best use of there new partnership!

That pathetic Symbian fails to impress and that MeeGo is too late.
haha, in your face nokia. in your face. This was your last chance to acquire a company that has a far better UI and touchscreen as well.
this might actually be a good thing...wish them both the best and hope the WebOS gets some facelifts....
