Vice President Who Was In Charge Of Designing The Pre Leaves Palm And HP

We knew that plenty of Palm employees left once HP acquired the company, but now we know the latest one to jump ship: Peter Skillman, Palm's Vice President of Design. Also known as the man who designed the Pre.

It's sad to see yet another high-ranking individual leave Palm and HP so soon after HP CEO Mark Hurd's resignation, but as TechCrunch's MG Siegler remarks: This "should hardly be surprising, given [...] rumors of a mass exodus of executives from Palm as the HP deal neared completion." [TechCrunch]
