Apple to acquire Palm?

Posted on Wednesday, February 08 2006 @ 22:23:53 CET by

Personal Computer World diggs up an old rumour that Apple plans to buy handheld and smartphone maker Palm.
The fact that Apple has been named as a possible buyer may seem strange to those who recall that one of the most controversial acts of CEO Steve Jobs was to kill off the pen-driven Apple Newton, a pre-cursor of the Palm Pilot, when he returned to the company after a 10-year absence in 1996.

Yet the two companies are closely linked. They are near neighbours and several early Palm employees, including co-founder and former company president Donna Dubinsky, previously worked with Apple.

it easily understandable apple's interest from the wide view. someone needs to make these things cool and indispensable, no one has yet. i think only apple can create a pda and take it to the mainstream. the technology is mature now, unlike when they invented it with Newton.

combine it with an ipod? perfect.
