    If this is true, Palm had alot more to offer and was more appealing, then some on here had hoped right before the buyout. Also if true that shareholder lawsuit's really has no merit does it? What say you Precentral.net?

    Interesting, I'm curious tho if one of those bidders was apple. I'd think they would love to get palm(patents) and then just erase them. If they were a bidder I'm thankful hp stepped up their bid......very very thankful!!!!

    I bet the 4 other companies were Lenovo, Huawei, HTC, and Cisco. I have a strong feeling C was either Lenovo or HTC.

    Out of the 16 companies Palm approached on their sale, less than a third of them even showed an interest. When the dust settles, HP walks away wih a lowball $5.70/share price and is now probably saying *** seeing as how they could have gotten Palm for $0.10/share less. Palm was definitely a bad investment for it's stockholders - let's see if HP can make it worth something again.

    I bet Apple was in the bidding war and that their only goal was to make sure HTC did not acquire Palm and it's patents portfolio because if this would have happened, Apple's lawsuit against HTC would have gone out the window.
