palm buys handspring!


Wow! Surprising in its timing (if not in content, I guess that it had always been a possibility) because of the relatively weak strategic positions of both companies at the moment. It was announced early today before the beginning of trading. Coverage from and CNNmoney. It makes sense, since handspring has been moving further out than Palm into the area of "communicators", leaving "pure" handheld organizers behind, at the moment the product lines of both companies complement each other quite well. Whether the handheld-organizer-only side will survive the current trend that integrates communication (data+voice) functionality with the organizer functionality is another matter.
