Palm And Handspring Made For Each Other?
It would be ironic if Palm and Handspring merged. To some degree a merger makes sense given the slowing PDA market and increased competition from PocketPC. But if you merge the two companies then that leaves Sony as a major independent Palm OS licesee. For the Palm OS to have a shot again PocketPC and Symbian (in Europe), they are going to need as many lincensees as possible. Merging the two companies could actually do more harm than good. Of course if the alternative is no Palm licensees, one or two is better than none.
