Does HP + Palm = Facepalm?

ChiefMonkeyGrinder submitted a bit of commentary on yesterday’s news that
HP was buying Palm. From TFA

“When I first read the news that HP was buying Palm for $1.2 billion, my first reaction was that HP had lost its marbles (âÅ”cluelessâ was how I tweeted it.) Why, I wondered, did it need to pay $1.2 billion for a dying platform when it could have used the increasingly-popular Android for nothing (OK, it probably picked up a few useful patents, as well)? I also thought that it didn’t have the resources to enter the extremely competitive area of smartphones.”
