Sign of the new era: Palm on, brand intact

With the HP acquisition of Palm closing today, the first public sign of the new combination arrived this morning with the launch of HP's Wireless Central store and new sections of its Small and Midsized Business pages.

Last thing's first - at the bottom of HP's SMB pages where you can now find Palm devices, we find this valuable piece of information from the business site is in its fine print:

Palm, Pixi, Pre and webOS are trademarks of Palm, Inc., a subsidiary of Hewlett Packard Company.

That is solid confirmation that, at least in the near term, the Palm brand, and Palm itself, will remain intact within the HP organization.

Read on to see how Palm has already popped up on HP's site.


On the Wireless Central site )in reality a co-branded effort with Simplexity's users can purchase Pres, Pixis and their Plus versions (and even a legacy iPaq) from various carriers. 

Within its small & medium business site, HP also features Palm hardware, with new lease options.
