ELevation is joining a quartet of private equity firms who are making a bid on Skype.

KKR, Warburg, Providence and Elevation Surface in Skype Bid | Peter Lattman | Voices | AllThingsD

Wonder what that means to web OS and the future... interesting scenario dont you think?

Actually, the article says that the offer was rejected.

Even if a deal is reached, I'm not so sure that there'd be any impact on Palm.

the impact i think the OP was going for was that skype president said they will not make a skype app for webos as of now, and if they are helped by elevation and elevation is heavily invested into palm, it would be intersting to see sykpe new take on webos

yes ... i was thinking the same. If Plam and Skype have the same minority owner, we should expect some coordination among the 2 companies.
