Key Palm exec leaves amid reports of pending sale
Rumors of the sale have been flying around for a while now, with HTC until recently being named Most Likely to Aquire, but now it seems nobody knows if there are any takers.
Speaking as someone who has owned a Palm PDA since before cell phones were going to be The Next Big Thing, I hope somebody buys it and gets that OS off the ground. I ended up with a Droid because A) I wouldn't switch to ATT so I could get a Pre and B) I thought there was too great a chance Palm would fold before my warranty was up. I like the Droid most of the time but I was very surprised at how much it can't do, like completely synchronize and integrate the contacts list with the calendar like the Palm can.
So I hope Palm makes it. Their OS is better. Everything else, including the physical phone bodies, screens, and marketing, sucks. If they can get themselves turned around, and get something like this Google Navigation upon which I have become completely dependent, my next phone will be another Palm.
