    Rubenstein stays. Will be codified July 31. Discuss how awesome HP hardware will now mate with WebOS. This is a great acquisition in my opinion.

    I think HP can really turn Palm around in the right direction.

    Yes, I think this is really good news for WebOS.

    I'm wondering what strategy HP will take addressing Palm's marketing issues.

    I'm saying "marketing issues" not because I know that to be the problem, but only because it seems that way to me as we watch Blackberry, Android and iPhone dominate the smart phone market.

    HP does quite a bit of marketing for their computers. I'd expect to see the same from Palm after HP gets in there and works their magic.

    Do you think that HP will let Palm be the way they are or shake things up by having like a future HP phone?

    Hmmm... I can see it later on down the road but definitely not right away, IMO.

    Palm gets to keep their CEO.. makes me wonder. ;)

    I'd like to be a fly on the wall at some of the early meetings about marketing, etc.

    I hope Palm will do away with any proprietary charging slots and should just use the USB charging slot like most phones. My Palm Treo, though served me for such a long time, now is a pain to charge, it will occasionally stop charging, and I had to wiggle the cable every now and then just to charge it again.

    The Palm Pre Plus has the standard USB charging slot. What I hated about it was that you actually had to slide the screen up to even be able to open it. The first time I tried to charge it, I couldn't figure out how to open the cover. hehe

    That's good to hear! Perhaps I'll have another Palm smartphone if HP and Palm come out with a winner in a few years.
