The Palm brand might be coming back, courtesy of Alcatel Onetouch
It’s been a good long while since we’ve mentioned Palm around these parts, but there’s a strong possibility we could be mentioning them a lot more often if what we think is happening is in fact what is happening. By all appearances, it looks like Alcatel Onetouch has purchased the Palm brand and trademarks from HP. This comes just a few years after HP shut down webOS and eventually open sourced it and sold their development assets to LG. It’s hard to say what exactly Alcatel Onetouch might be doing with the Palm trademarks, anything from protecting their own branding to a complete rebrand as Palm is possible.
