Should Dell purchase Palm to go against Apple iPhone?
Three analysts have said it would make sense for Dell Inc to purchase Palm Inc. Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu said Palm could be the target that allows Dell to get into the smartphone market.
Recently Dell put forward their Windows Mobile smartphones to several mobile carriers and they showed no interest in Dell smartphones due to lack of design.
Sramana Mitra, a financial consultant also recently put forward factors that would favour a union between Dell and Palm and stated that Palm could not take on the Apple iPhone alone and that a union between Palm and Dell would dramatically change that equation.
So what do you thing readers, should Palm join with Dell to compete with the Apple iPhone?
