HP to Acquire Palm for $1.2 Billion

HP to Acquire Palm for $1.2 Billion


HP and Palm, Inc. today announced that they have entered into a
definitive agreement under which HP will purchase Palm, a provider
of smartphones powered by the Palm webOS mobile operating system,
at a price of $5.70 per share of Palm common stock in cash or an
enterprise value of approximately $1.2 billion. The transaction
has been approved by the HP and Palm boards of directors.


Palm’s current chairman and CEO, Jon Rubinstein, is expected to remain with the company.

Strikes me as a great move for both companies. Palm gets some muscle, and HP gets out from under the thumb of licensing OSes from Microsoft. HP is not going to make the same mistake in the mobile market that they made in the PC market, by not owning and controlling their own OS.
