Jonathan Rubinstein, the hardware engineering guru who helped bring Apple back on track, is going to be the new executive chairman of Palm. Hopefully this will give new life to their product line. Also joining in is former Apple CFO Fred Anderson, who will join the board, and Bono's Elevation Partners, which is taking a 25 percent stake in the company and may want to paint all (products) red.

Great news..and i hope it ISN'T too late. The more companies that are competing in the phone industry the better for the consumer..plus my 680 is getting bit stale! The death of a company like Palm will only lessen our options and the need for the rest to innovate.
