    Even if they don't go bankrupt, their share price makes it very tempting for someone to snatch them up so they can get serious in the smartphone market. HP makes a lot of sense, as well as dell. I doubt it would require it, but a hostile bid would seal the fate if Palm turned down a solid offer.

    edit: Blackberry and Samsung are also good ideas. However I bet blackberry would scoff at using somebody else's os.

    This is exactly why I think that Blackberry would be interested in owning Palm.
    Pilot Pro -> Pilot Vx -> Kyocera 7135 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680 -> Pre -> Pixi Plus -> Pre2 + TouchPad -> BB 9930 -> Pre3+ Playbook
    Verizon -> Cingular -> ATT -> Sprint -> Verizon -> ATT

    i don't think that amazon needs to purchase palm, but some serious partnership between the two companies would definitely be mutually beneficial.
