CES 2015 - Palm is expected to make some type of comeback during the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but no one is really sure what to expect. The company essentially dropped off the face of the planet after Hewlett-Packard purchased it, though it looks like Alcatel Onetouch is ready to make something happen.
Famed for its personal digital assistant (PDA) technology many moons ago, it's arguable whether or not a Google Android-version Palm from Alcatel Onetouch would be able to actually make a dent in the competitive smartphone market. However for nostalgic reasons, many consumers might at least give any new hardware offerings a quick glance.
"Will there be any previewas at next week's CES in Las Vegas?" pondered Jeff Kagan, wireless industry analyst, in a press statement. "On one hand I hope so. This could be very exciting. On the other hand this will not be the same Palm. This time it will be a foreign company, not a US company. What that means, who knows? We'll just have to wait and see. Either way, this will be an interesting event to watch. Stay tuned."
