HP to buy Palm

by Carl. 0 Comments

Is HP trying to catch up with the industry?

HP already bought Compaq a couple of years ago to become a major player in the PC market.

Although I’ve never tried it, I love the concept of the Palm Pre. A sound alternative to Apple’s iPhone. But it seems to have been a too big project for Palm. Will this purchase be enough for HP to become a major player in the handheld computer market? Or will it allow HP to become a player on the handheld tablet matket?

In any case, this will need HP to fight on the operating systems market. Apple on one side, Google on the other side (not to mention Microsoft who will probably try not to be left behind), not an easy task…

Anyone still use a Filofax?

Filofax and iPhoneThe first Filofax was sold in 1921. A Filofax was once the must-have accessory for the young and upwardly mobile in the Eighties but today, some might even wonder what a Filofax is…

I used to love my Filofax. I moved to PDAs some time ago with the Palm Pilot III, to Palm Tungsten-T, to Windows Mobile based HP iPAQ and now to Apple iPhone.

I’m never on the move without my 3000+ contacts, my wireless Internet access, my 7+ days of music and so much more.

I still have my twenty-year old Filofax but have to admit it’s been ages I did not buy any refill. My Filofax now looks so useless, does anyone still use a Filofax?

Palm’s revival?

Palm  PrePalm webOS, Palm Pre, App Catalog, Palm has managed to create a strong buzz at CES 2009 and seems back in business with a updated and complete range of products.

Wi-Fi, GPS, keyboard, connected applications, calendars and contacts, and so much more, Palm Pre has all the features expected in the product category created by Apple’s iPhone.

Palm webOS applications are easy to write using Mojo, a new application framework based on the HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript standards. WebOS applications are installed and run directly on the device and have access to a wide range of device services.

Last but not the least, Palm will provide an App Catalog, on-device application catalog to deliver your apps directly to users. No doubt App Catalog will grow rapidly.

More about Palm Pre on the Palm Pre product page.

Is the community of Palm lovers still strong enough for a real Palm revival?
