I hope not, i used to be a palm follower but since palm/HP took forever to release a damn phone i switched over to android. Still if Palm makes a killer phone(doubt it) i'll go back to WebOS.

I really waNt to see more devices running webOs. WebOS is just the best OS but it needs to be on better and more phones, coz I dont like the pixi and pre plus style! :|

I just can't figure out these mentally defective corporate bots. Palm had a genormous brand franchise that endured despite the bean counters' serial paroxysms of mergers and aquistions. No matter what they did, the Palm brand survived. And now they want to purposefully do what they couldn't accomplish through negligence. KILL OFF THE PALM NAME!!! They had a bizillion loyal Palm owners that looked forward to no more than an advance in features whilst still keeping the local PIMsync feature (just like Backberry) without having to hang their dirty laundry in the cloud. But now they want to get rid of the Palm name? Yea. Call the new devices: new coke phones.Dumb asses

kee the Palm name. HP is great but not on a mobile device. Why can't HP keeo the name and act as a parent company, I wouldent even mind PalmHP on the phone. Don't take the Palm logo away, it would be like PVH changing Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and I zod all to PVH. There are consumers that shop at all these stores and have no clue it's the same company. The Palm does not have to go anywhere for the webos to make it. HP has the money to pump into the brand to make it big. Just keep Palm, I like HP but I won't buy a Windows phone because I don't think of Windows as a phone company, just like HP.
