We've been keeping a steady eye on all of the Palm buyout rumors and the latest whispers from CNBC have Motorola at the head of the race. If united, the two might have a better chance of taking on Apple's almighty iPhone. Think about it. Moto makes some nice phones, but their OS has always been craptastic. Now picture a Moto Q9 running Palm instead of WM6. Sure, WM6 is an improvement over WM5, but the thought of a Q running Palm would make me part with my cash a lot faster, especially if it's more affordable than an iPhone.
