Palm Becomes PalmOne
All last week people were murmuring about what new name Palm was going to come up with. They needed to choose a new name to further separate themselves from PalmSource – the OS company they’re spinning off. Some were afraid that they were going to ditch the Palm name altogether, tossing out plenty of goodwill built up over the past few years. Some also feared that they might dare go with the handle that was jokingly used internally to refer to the merged company of Palm and Handspring: PalmSpring. However, the end result really isn’t all that exciting, but probably makes the most sense. The company will be called PalmOne from now on.
