As reported earlier HP bought Palm and apparently nobody saw this one coming. On top of that I think this is actually the best solution for Palm. In an interview with TechCrunch, HP Senior Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development Brian Humphries said "WebOS is the best-in-class mobile operating system. Our intent is to double down on webOS".
I would not say its the best, but it is definitely good enough to compete with AppleiPhone OS, Android and the upcoming MicrosoftWindows 7 Mobile.
HP was a smartphoneplayer back when they bought Compaq and the iPaq was hip. Pairing cool hardware designs like found in the HP Slate paired with Palm's webOS is the entry back into the smartphone game.
The future of Palm webOS looks pretty good if they HP and the Palm team can execute now effectively.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
