    PalmOne Officially Becomes Palm

    PDA makers changes its names and its logo, but what does that mean for
    its products?

    PalmOne became Palm Thursday, changing its Nasdaq stock market ticker
    symbol to PALM.

    The PDA maker has also changed its logo to a new design that will
    appear on products later in the year, it says.

    PalmOne was formed when the original Palm was renamed after spinning
    off its Palm OS PDA operating system software business into a separate
    company, PalmSource, so that the software unit could concentrate on
    third part licensing.

    The latest name change follows PalmOne's announcement in May that it
    had agreed to pay PalmSource $30 million for full rights to the Palm
    brand name. The Palm brand name had been co-owned by PalmOne and
    PalmSource since PalmSource was spun off in October 2003.

    Product Plans

    Palm manufactures PDAs (personal digital assistants), smart phones,
    and other accessories. It has been hit hard in recent years because of
    an overall decline in the PDA market, and a loss of market share to
    companies such as Hewlett-Packard.

    But the company has bounced back somewhat with its hit Treo smart
    phone products, acquired when it bought former Palm OS licensee
    Handspring.

    The company also recently changed its top management, appointing Ed
    Colligan Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in May.

    As PalmOne, the company formerly traded under the Nasdaq ticker symbol
    PLMO. Palm is now located in Sunnyvale, California.
