    Hewlett-Packard's PC Unit May Lure Lenovo, Samsung as Bidders

    Hewlett-Packard's PC Unit May Lure Lenovo, Samsung as Bidders

    Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Hewlett-Packard Co.'s plans to unload its personal-computer business, the world's biggest, may attract China's Lenovo Group Ltd. and South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. as suitors, analysts said.

    Lenovo, the Chinese company that bought International Business Machines Corp.'s PC business in 2005, would be a leading candidate, analysts at technology research firms Ovum Ltd. and IDC said. Samsung may also be interested because the purchase may complement its geographic and product mix, said Carter Lusher, a researcher at Ovum.

    Will Samsung Buy Palm From Hewlett Packard?

    Hewlett-Packard's PC Unit May Lure Lenovo, Samsung as Bidders

    Shortly after the 2009 CES where Palm revealed its new WebOS, Hewlett-Packard dived in and acquired the cash poor phone Company for $1.8 billion. It was a high risk gamble to get into the phone and tablet market which now appears to have imploded.
    At the time I was the only Australian journalist at the event and it was clear that the real asset was Jon Rubinstein the CEO of Palm and a former Apple executive.

    The only hope now is for a big Asian manufacturer to take over the Palm brand and the Web OS development team. One candidate could be Samsung, who despite claiming that they are "okay" with the recent acquisition of Motorola Mobility by Google, "have their reservations" about the deal.
