HP secures two-letter Armenian url for Gram

A good web address is a hard thing to come across. That's a lesson we learned when we were figuring out the identity for this site when we realized that PreCentral just wasn't going to cut it anymore; webOS.com is owned by HyperOffice (the true cloud and mobile operating system), webOScentral.com is owned by HP (who weren't willing to consider transferring the domain to us), and others. Thankfully, we were able to secure webOSnation.com and that's where we are now (and not planning a Gram-related rebrand anytime soon).

So with the recent revelation that HP would be spinning off the webOS Global Business Unit as a new company named Gram, we pondered about and tried to figure out what website they'd go with. Gram.com is being squatted upon (money grams, instagrams, and weighting, it seems), as is gram.org (buy gold now!), gram.net is somebody's website filled with baby pictures, and so forth. So HP thought outside the box for their domain registration for Gram and turned to Armenia's top-level domain and got their website: gr.am

There's nothing at gr.am right now, nor would we expect there to be, considering that HP hadn't planned to unveil the new name and company just yet. So sit tight, keep your eyes on webOSnation.com and gr.am for whatever they announce whenever they announce it.
