    Could we see a new Palm smartphone in 2015?

    How about HP's iPaq trademark or at least charge a certain company borrowing a similar name?

    In a sense I agree. While a different company may resurrect the name Palm, its not really a Palm. They're dead and buried.

    HP really screwed up with Palm, they had so much going for them on this and they couldn't figure it out.

    I was so sad to see HP totally abandon Palm. I had several Palm devices and loved them. I would be very interested to see the Palm brand come back in some fashion.

    The Palm Pre was ahead of its time when it was released. Its shocking how HP messed up! That OS could have been amazing!
