HP just announced that they are going to acquire Palm for about $1.2 billion. “Palm's innovative operating system provides an ideal platform to expand HP's mobility strategy and create a unique HP experience spanning multiple mobile connected devices,” said HP's EVP of personal statements Todd Bradley in a statement.
