Pre to Postmortem

Thirty-one.

That’s the number of months it took Palm, Inc. to go from the darling of International CES 2009 to a mere shadow of itself, a nearly anonymous division inside the HP machine without a hardware program and without the confidence of its owners. Thirty-one months is just barely longer than a typical American mobile phone contract.

Chris Ziegler has a phenomenal feature on The Verge regarding what is effectively the death of Palm and webOS. This is a fascinating story, assembled from discussions with those who helped write it.
