It didn’t surprise me today when I learned that Palm has been put up for sale. I am saddened by this news though. My first real PDA was the original PalmPilot 1000 followed by model after model through the years. I’m probably not alone when I say that Palm lost its luster long ago. I kept hoping they would do something amazing to turn things around and I kept my fingers crossed for them when the Palm Pre was released last year. Unfortunately that product hasn’t received the same attention as the iPhone and Android devices and now Palm’s future is up in the air. At this point I think it will take a miracle for them to reclaim their former glory… but that doesn’t keep me from rooting for them.
