H-P is acquiring Palm for $1B and they say it is to position them further into the smartphone market which reportedly grew by over 60% last year. H-P’s head of strategy, Shane Robison said “It’s an opportunity for us to get into a very big market”. Understandable? It is to me. I’m not saying it’s a good strategy, but they have ONE reason for the acquisition and from my experience H-P is more likely to be successful because people get it.
