or so rumour has it – this is a direct reaction to our previous post about HP acquiring Palm and stealing a march on Cisco. This rumour has spread across lots of Techie blogs – see a blog round up here We are not sure if there is any substance to this rumour but it would certainly make one very powerful company should the two merge.
I am sure you have all seen the news that HP has acquired Palm – it will be interesting to see how this develops. The Iridiacom team has all used Palm devices in the past and they were well used but they seemed to get overtaken by some of the Smartphone offerings that give you your PDA features and phone in one.
The Palm Pre has been well received and we believe that HP will bring this technology together with their product offerings such as 3COM VoIP to offer Enterprise Businesses end to end solutions including desktop and mobile solutions and they are probably the only company who can offer this in terms of hardware and software so I guess it is over to Cisco to see their next move.
