Palm.com is no more; replaced with HPwebOS.com

We've already seen the Palm logo removed from its place on the back of webOS devices, the App Catalog and even from the corner of the Palm website. Perhaps one of the biggest blows to the Palm brand comes today, as HP has removed the palm.com URL altogether, and replaced it with HPwebOS.com. You can still reach the website by going to the old URL, but you'll notice immediately that the URL changes in your address bar to reflect the new name. 

As we've oft talked about elsewhere, we hoped that the Palm brand would be sticking around in some way, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The only thing left to change are the Palm branded batteries that power the Veer (which most people won't see anyway), a few social networks that have been used by the company, and the developer website (which still uses the palm.com URL, but can be reached by going through http://developer.hpwebos.com/). Long live Palm? Palm, the brand, is very sadly dead.
