With the acquisition of Palm, HP is still committed in making Windows Phones
There has always been this strong relationship between HP and Microsoft that will likely continue long after Palm is fully absorbed. Within moments of the breaking news surrounding HP's buyout of Palm, some were wondering if there was going to be any conflicts between Palm's webOS platform and their long time partnership with Microsoft's platform. After a long absence in the US mobile scene, HP stormed back with the iPAQ Glisten which may have been lost among the other Windows Mobile offerings out there. During a conference call today, HP's VP of Strategy and Corporate Development, Brian Humphries said, “We intend to continue to be a strategic partner for Microsoft. They’re a huge piece of our business today, and will continue to be so.” In fact, it'll be interesting to see if or how HP will integrate the neat features of webOS into any of their future products. Ultimately, we're all hoping that HP comes back strong to become a dominant figure in the Windows Phone camp.
