No Windows Mobile for you! Says Palm.

Well, that's it people, Palm/Windows Mobile fans out there - there will be no more Palm devices running Windows Mobile.

For me, those are sad news. Palm Treo 750 was my favorite WinMo phone, and the one I kept for the longest period as well. In addition, I still haven't managed to put my hands on the latest Palm Treo Pro.

For Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein - all of my problems are not so relevant, in Palm's earnings call he said that Palm will not develop new devices running Microsoft's Windows Mobile platform. The company will invest all of its effort on its new WebOS platform.

Palm just announced it’s results for Q1 with $2.8m profit on $68m revenue, making their comeback look solid.

<span style="color: #808080;">Wow.  Palm is doubling down on WebOS.  I think WebOS is actually pretty nice, but I'm worried this decision is not such a good decision.  Sure, from a company pride perspective, it would be terrible morale to just drop WebOS and latch onto competitive platforms that are doing better (WM and Android).  But the Palm Pre is just not a popular device.  I don't know if I would put all my chips in on that OS, even though I think it's actually pretty nice.  It's my second favorite next to WM.  I think it looks way slicker than Android.</span>

<span style="color: #808080;">I think we may be poised to say goodbye to Palm (again).</span>

Then their name will be bought by somebody else and the brand will again be resurrected.  Just you watch!</span>
