Amazon is thinking to buy Palm and its webOS. Palm is the manufacturer of the smartphone which is owned by the Hewlett-Packard.
According to VentureBeat, if the news appears to be true then it will enable Amazon to work on its own software in webOS, rather than amending Google’s Android platform as it has done with the Kindle Fire. Kindle Fire with a new flavor will emerge for sale in November with the cost of $199.
The Fire was strengthened by the Google Android which has been altered entirely, minimizing the resemblance to a very low level with the real Android.
Devindra Hardawar, an author wrote that “By buying the remnants of Palm, Amazon would have free rein to redesign webOS to its own liking, and it would be able to further differentiate its Kindle devices from the slew of Android tablets in the market.”
Palm was purchased by the HP in April 2010 with the cost of $1.2 billion. It assured that the future smartphones and tablets will be powered by Palm’s webOS. But unfortunately the most eminent product of HP’s webOS, the TouchPad tablet, failed to grip the market against Apple’s iPad, and was suspended with inventory cleared out in a $99 fire sale.
