    I love the Pre but Palm can't make it as a going concern at this point. It was a good try and they advanced the smartphone cause some but I am sure they are actively considering a liquidity event.

    Nintendo - em.. yeah...
    HTC is dependent on Windows & Android. It's always nice to add in another OS if they think they can sell it. An in house OS ensures that HTC is future proofed. (Much like google creating android in the first place so that they could make sure there's mobile devices out there with google services)

    HTC's problem with android is that it takes them time to upgrade Sense. Too much time? And Google calls the shots on android.

    And of course there's the patents.
