Beating an Apple with a Palm

In a ZDnet blog post titled Did HP save Palm with acquisition? Or did it save itself? the pros and cons (mainly pros) of the HP-Palm merger are presented. This chart breaks down some of the reason s for the merger.

I thought it interesting how they talked about HP needing Palm to compete with future iPad like devices speaking of a “Beat Apple” mentality that seems to be shared by both HP and Palm. I like the merger because I own a Palm Pre and think that their WebOS system is a really good smartphone architecture. And truthfully I also have a “Beat Apple” mentality.. unless Sprint offers me an iPhone
