    I don't understand the purpose of the line, I don't need to drink to have fun. Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

    I'm sure this kind of thing happens with every acquisition, as it does after every traffic accident, natural disaster, unfortunate disease, etc., etc. It's otherwise known as "ambulance chasing."

    Probably, but it's significant that Howard G Smith has filed a lawsuit alleging that the price that HP is paying for Palm, $5.70/stock, is severely undervalued and negatively affects investors. Could be an interesting cog in the spokes of the sale, possibly delaying it if Tripp Levy finds that this is the case.

    are they under paying them? probably..

    does palm have any better alternatives? probably not, or they would of chose them..


    It's very unlikely that palm can make it on their own, and they obviously sold themselves to the highest bider. I think htc might of had a higher offer, but after making that deal with Microsoft they realized they are no longer in need of palm. Now let them close the deal so we could see the effects of increased funding.

    At least the investors are getting SOME money back instead of losing it all because the company goes under

    Since analysts have been predicting that Palm's stock would drop to zero, and there have for some time now been strong sell recommendations, I don't think there's anything here. Really, I think this is ambulance chasing, and I doubt that HP has failed to do their due diligence on the purchase. They probably also have an upper limit that they're willing to pay that's something north of $5.70 per share.

    Also, the fact that Elevation Partners, 30% majority shareholders, are backing the deal carries some weight.

    Just something to keep an eye on. I'm of the opinion that $5.70/share does undervalue the potential of webOS in the mobile space. I think the most value is on the tablet front, especially if the market for them takes off. It is an ideal OS for the tablet form factor. This, combined with Palm's patent portfolio makes the HP sales a deal. That said, if the choice was between $5.70/share and a company disappearing, which Palm was on pace to do, then investors can consider themselves lucky. I'm just glad I dumped at $14. =)

    Isn't there some level of irony when some analysts (including a few experts on here) were touting that the value of Palm was 0, and now that someone wants to buy them out for 1.2 billion, someone's ready to sue for undvaluing them?
