New Palm Inc

La que fuera marca pionera en dispositivos móviles de mano o más conocidos como PDA’s, PALM Inc., está de vuelta. Después de unos cuantos años convulsos que no presagiaban nada bueno sobre su futuro, fue comprada por HP y posteriormente, esta última libera el sistema operativo de Palm, webOS como open webOS. El 25 de febrero de 2013, LG compra webOS para incorporarlo como la plataforma de sus televisores inteligentes.

Ahora, TCL resucita la marca Palm como New Palm Inc. con sede en California. Como se informó la semana pasada, TCL adquirió la marca Palm de HP a finales del año pasado aunque en ese momento no estaba claro el futuro que la compañía había planeado para la conocida marca. Por cierto, quizás la marca TCL no os suene mucho pero si os decimos que este holding comercializa sus productos de electrónica bajo dos marcas, la propia TCL y Alcatel seguro que se os aclaran las ideas 😉

Todavía habrá que esperar un poco hasta que veamos los primeros productos bajo la marca New Palm pero os aseguramos de que estamos ansiosos por saber el futuro que TCL le tiene preparado. Mientras, os dejamos la nota de prensa que ha publicado la empresa en el marco de este CES 2015:

TCL Communication co-(re)creates Palm

(LAS VEGAS, January 6 2015) – Palm brand has always been synonymous with innovation throughout its history. As such it has consistently acted as a pioneer of mobile technologies. Now is the time to revive and bring back this pioneer spirit.

To do so, TCL Communication Technology Holdings Limited (“TCL Communication” or the “Company” which, together with its subsidiaries, is referred to as the “Group”; is very proud to announce that it will create a new Palm Inc., a US-based company that will take ownership of the Palm brand. New Palm Inc. will remain a truly Californian, Silicon Valley, based company leveraging on the talents and partnerships of the area.

Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions. That’s why TCL has set the direction to rebuild the brand involving Palm’s very own community, making it the largest scale crowd-sourced project ever seen in the industry.

The objective goes far beyond proposing a more advanced device. It is to deliver absolute breakthrough innovations in Technology, Design, User Experience, Eco-system, Marketing, Supply Chain, and Business Models.

The exact timeline of the roll-out of the Palm project will be communicated at a later date.

TCL Communication, the 5th largest global handsets vendor, is operating globally under the ALCATEL ONETOUCH brand and TCL brand. It has already reached breakthrough positions, in multiple regions of the world.

During the past 3 years, TCL Communication has evolved from a leading position in feature phones to a top player in Smart Devices with a comprehensive portfolio of Smartphones, Tablets, IoT, Wearables, Mobile Routers.
