Wow both companies have such different visions of cell phone design, I wonder how it would all work out if this happened.

can you imagine web os in a touch pro 2? or touch diamond?...let htc do the phone design and put web os under the hood.

I haven't played with Web OS, but I would hate to see HTC put Android phones behind them. I could see Lenova buying Palm before HTC.

i dont think palm would put android behind them. this is a perfect way to add the awesomeness of webos multitasking with android and windows phone 7 by working it in there sense UI.. its perfect and i believe this is the move they would make. palm is dead :( but webOS is brillant!! so, i think this is all they want from it along with all the patents palm owns as well...

I think it'd be a great thing for HTC, I can imagine a truly awesome webOS/Android hybrid, plus I think a webOS UI would be cooler then the SenseUI which I don't really like much.

What would be profitable is if you locked it up...

Palm getting bought out by HTC would only be the smart thing to do. Palm devices don't sell right now, primarily because of all the issues they have. HTC has been around soooo long that they know how to create great working phones. Ya battery life can be crap, but they do know how to make a devices. Honestly, think about it... The BEST of 2 worlds coming together.
