TCL confirms the rumor we started: Alcatel OneTouch’s owner is indeed behind the new Palm.
In case TCL Communication’s Alcatel OneTouch is indeed behind the return of Palm, what would its plans be for the well-loved mobile brand? Here are some possible scenarios.
Here’s how MakaPalm came up with the theory that TCL’s Alcatel is behind the return of Palm.
“Smart move” is the brand slogan of TCL Communication’s Alcatel OneTouch, and the name of a top TCL executive appears on Palm’s trademark transfer document.
Update: A Reuters report said Palm hired bankers “to assess strategic options for the company, including a potential sale.” Citing an anonymous source, the report added that Palm could look for additional financing or license webOS if it chooses not to sell itself.
