Palm name out & the HP branding will continue the legacy
posted by John V. / Feb 09, 2011, 3:13 PM
However, that’s looking to be the last time we’ll be seeing that name used with any future webOS device because the brand name Palm was pretty much MIA during HP’s special event today. In fact, every portion of the event showcased the HP branding without the subtle instance of Palm’s name being mentioned.
From the HP TouchPad to the HP Pre 3, we utterly see the once formidable name no longer breathing life in any of the devices announced today. Regardless of that, it was inevitably only a matter of time before HP ‘s name would solely highlight products from their camp.
Naturally, we’ll look back at the Palm’s history and realize that they’ve made their mark since their brand recognition is still moderately known around the world. So, we’ll all push forward and now that HP is committed to webOS, they’ll undoubtedly continue the legacy established by Palm.
Looks like HP is kin to Bill Gates. Just as he pretty much bought software that someone a whole lot smarter than him created and marketed it under his companies name. HP lacks the intelligence to create such a fine OS so they had to purchase it and label it as their own and pretty much not give an y credit to the original authors. Way to go HP, you branded a product you didn't create. You will be lucky if anyone buys it since they will probably think it sucks cause your name is all over it. You would do better to leave Palm on it so people know that brilliance developed it.

dude, get your story straight. Either HP could have gone with a build of Android or Windows Phone 7. Or they bought out a Mobile OS with a history to be the OS flagship for its brand. I dont see HP being able to buy Android or WP7. So choice were simple Palm webOS or S^3. And since S^3 is kinda of floating in the water to the point that even Nokia is going to most likely drop it webOS was the smart choice. Secondly sir, Kin was not Bill Gates but Steve Ballmer. So fail as well. Lastly, if you spend several millions dollars on a product you would your name all over it as well. So I say good day, I said good day.

I will not buy a Pre 3 unless they have Palm on the device. Palm fans are very loyal, why would you want to kill the brand Palm. What brand has loyal fans like Palm that will stay with a device due to be, no one. Webos is a great, make your mobile devices say Palm, name your PC and printer HP, don't kill the Palm name through good and bad. I really hope HP rethinks dropping the Palm name, I feel comfortable with a Palm device, not HP. I look at HP as a computer make nit a cell phone maker.

I love HP, great pcs have come out of this company but I would not buy a phone with there bame on it. You have apple,HTC,Samsung, HP is new to the block. They would be better off keeping the Palm brand to make everyone happy. It's not like consumers don't know that HP is the parent
