We mentioned in a post this morning that Palm was looking for a buyer – with HTC and Lenovo being two companies showing the most interest. When you think about it, HTC will be the better option for a number of reasons — the main one being the huge reach that HTC has.
However, HTC does have one small problem, and that is how heavily involved they are with Google and its Android OS. HTC could go one of two ways, they could either offer both OS platforms in their portfolio, or they could consider backing webOS all the way.
Palm’s webOS is considered the best on the market, could you imagine what it would be like to have an HTC Incredible running on webOS and not Android? ZDnet has also been looking at the options and has even proposed that HTC could buyout Palm just to kill of webOS.
It is no secret that webOS is lacking in a few areas, but HTC will be able to fix that problem. However, Palm’s mobile OS is considered to be better at multitasking and offer a better gaming experience than Google Android.
What would you like to see happen to Palm?
