+ - Palm App Catalog glitch locks out WebOS users->

Submitted by hazmat2k
hazmat2k (911198) writes "Palm’s App Catalog appears to have suffered a meltdown of sorts, with users of Palm Pre, Pixi, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus handsets reporting that after having downloaded a new title – whether paid or free – no aftermarket software will run properly. The issue remains even after fully erasing and restarting the phone; in fact, the apps are still installed even after that process is completed. However core functionality – calls, messaging and data – are all unaffected."

+ - HP Buys Palm for $1.2bn->

Submitted by hazmat2k
hazmat2k (911198) writes "After all the speculation, HP has agreed to buy Palm (NSDQ: PALM) for $1.2 billion, or roughly $5.70 a share.

Palm, which was running short of cash and struggling to compete against the Apple’s and Google’s of the world, will now have HP’s deep pockets and worldwide scope. While HP is no stranger to the mobile phone world—with its line of iPAQ phones—it has a lot of catching up to do and could benefit from branching out to phones and tablets from its a laptop and PC driven line-up."
