Palm is Dead

first_imgSort of a melancholy footnote to today’s otherwise happy launch of new webOS devices. All signs are pointing to the death of the Palm brand. The name has been in limbo ever since HP bought the ailing handset manufacturer, but this news really makes the whole thing officially official.HP stripped the Palm name from the launch of the Veer, Touchpad, and, most notable, Pre. The HP Pre 3? Doesn’t really roll of the tongue, does it?Anyway, just a quick post to note the effective end of the Palm name. It’s been an 18 year roller coaster, and part of us is sad to see the company go. From the looks of the new devices, however, it seems that Palm isn’t really going too far, after all.
