Yesterday, HP CEO Mark Hurd ruffled a few feathers by saying the company didn't buy Palm to get into the smartphone business. Rather, HP purchased Palm for the company's IP and WebOS and wants to put WebOS on tablets, netbooks and more.
HP surprised everyone when it swooped in and purchased Palm for more than $1.2 billion. However, despite dropping more than a couple of pretty pennies on the smartphone company, it seems HP isn't even interested in that side of Palm.
HP's Slate PC is said to be launching in October and comments from a HP Taiwan exec suggest that it could run Palm's WebOS.
Well so much for Palm surviving as an independent company; HP has swooped in a snapped up the smartphone company for a cool $1.2 billion.
HTC has said that it won't be submitting an offer to purchase Palm, despite the rumor mill saying otherwise.
