As you know Palm has "hit a speed bump" to borrow the words of Jon Rubinstein, CEO of Palm. The stock is way down and the Palm phones did not sell as well as expected. In a lengthy interview with Fortune Magazine's Adam Lashinsky, Jon Rubinstein lays out what went wrong and how Palm is going to succeed.

Amidst the takeover rumors, this interview is quite reassuring that Palm is able to make it. Rubinstein also mentions that Palm still has $590m in the bank. This means they still have time to hang in there and mature their smartphones.

I liked the webOs from the beginning. Its Linux based and looks quite nice and intuitive. What turned me off were the rather unsexy devices and the missing eco system: No apps and no music. Palm needs sexy devices and come up with a platform that offers plenty of great apps, games and media. This whole stunt about syncing with iTunes was a waste of time.
