Rubinstein to lead Palm unit, HP deal to close first week of July 56
Today, Palm held their Shareholder meeting to approve the pending 'merger' with HP. Jakerome in our forums went there this morning and offers the following notes based on a conversation with Teri Klein, VP of Investor Relations at Palm:
- Jon Rubinstein will lead the smartphone/mobility unit (whatever it will be called), which will absorb another HP unit.
- The deal is expected to close the first week of July
- The training for the AT&T launch went better than it did for the Verizon launch.
Jake also reports that Klein was especially enthusiastic about great things that are coming. If anybody else attended the meeting, please let us know what you've learned!
