Goldman Sachs has money to buy another company?
I guess Palm spent to much money on those creepy commercials that scared everyone from buying one! :P
I would like to see Palm and HTC merge. Then if they could incorporate into the Android systems, they might be able to gain a sizable share of the market.
Then very soon we might see the HTC answer to the IPad, with features like the EVO that thing would rock. Imagine a totally mobile unit all in one :)
Nah, I don't think it's the creppy commercials that doomed Palm.
Personally I don't know who'll buy the company. I don't think it'll be HTC because they already got most of the features that Palm has and Levono will possibly buy but I'm not sure of the reasons.
Hey, maybe a competitor not listed in this article will come and buy up Palm.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
HTC manufactured the hardware for Palm's Treo smartphones, Not sure if they also manufactured the Pre and Pixi hardware for them. It would be an interesting combination, athough Lenovo would make more sense. HP is another possible suitor, I think they have been wanting to ditch Windows mobile for a while now on their iPaq's this would give them their own OS.
I'm still sitting here 3 minutes later trying to figure out what Sachs has to do with smartphones.
"Reportedly, Palm is working with Goldman Sachs and Qatalyst Partners
to find a buyer. That's a pretty typical move for a company of
this magnitude, and the report also mentioned that both HTC and Lenovo
have"looked at the company and may be potential bidders."
Goldman Sachs is looking for people to buy up Palm. There is no mention of Goldman Sachs being interested in buying anyone.
Wow yeah I thought the Pre and Pixi was keeping them alive... unless they were planning on selling the company all along just so they could sell it at a higher value which isn't a bad idea. I'll be very curious as to who buys them up. I don't think it'll give them an extreme competitive edge, but it might give them some nice resources.
I liked their WebOS better but Palm's support for Microsoft Exchange is pretty bad.
Maybe Goldmans Brother Harry will Buy it and name the company accordingly :o
>> I would like to see Palm and HTC merge.
Me too. No doubt Palm has enough patents that HTC could send Apple a letter asking them to please sit down and shut up with their overgeneralized claims of infringement.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
