∞ Amazon interested in buying Palm


A well-placed source tells us that HP is currently looking to rid itself of Palm as soon as possible, and that Amazon is the closest to finalizing the deal, among a handful of contenders.

If true, it means that HP’s new CEO is also ready to give up on any kind of mobile strategy for the company. I still think webOS is a great mobile operating system and in the right hands, it could help pull a company into second place in the tablet market.
