Palm Retail stores closed permanently 148
After staying open for most of the company's lifetime, HP has decided to shut down the Palm stores permanently. The decision was put into effect yesterday as handwritten signs were placed around the stores to announce the news. Devices and accessories were cut to insanely cheap prices; customers (mostly HP employees who knew about the sale beforehand) could get a TouchStone Dock for $2.50 or a Veer for $50, plus any other gadgets that were still lying around.
Is this another nail driven into the coffin bearing webOS? Or could this just be in preparation for another company taking over hardware development?
