We've already talked about the tremendous opportunities that will come from marrying Palm's award-winning intellectual property with HP's scale and financial strength. You can imagine the potential impact of turning the billion people who already use HP products worldwide into fans of webOS phones and mobile systems.
For me, what's equally exciting is the Palm team itself. Over the last couple of weeks, I've had the opportunity to personally meet a number of Palm employees, and I’ve been impressed with their passion for innovation, vision for the future and commitment to growing with HP.
I've also heard great stories about the Palm community's enthusiasm. And I recently met with Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer from the Palm Developer Relations Team to discuss the opportunities that lie ahead for WebOS developers.
We're looking forward to the future. Please stay tuned to The Next Bench, our Twitter channels (@HP_PC, @palm) and Facebook pages (HP for Home, Palm) for updates.
