Palm smartphones are set to make a comeback, China’s TCL, which also owns the Alcatel OneTouch brand is resurrecting the Palm brand.
Palm was purchased by HP back in 2010 in a deal worth $1.2 billion, the company tried to launch new devices with Palm’s webOS, but they never really took off, and HP discontinued their webOS devices in 2011.
TCL is launching a new company called Palm Inc, it will be based in California, and TCL is looking to “rebuild the brand involving Palm’s very own community, making it the largest scale crowd-sourced project ever seen in the industry.”
The company has yet to reveal any details about the new Palm smartphones, one thing we know is that the device will not come with webOS.
We wonder if the new Palm smartphones will come with Google’s Android OS, as soon as we get some more details on exactly what TCL has planned for Palm, we will let you guys know.
