There was a time when Palm had the potential to be a breakout success that would stand alongside the iPhone as a defining chapter in the smartphone history. The company launched the Palm Pre at CES five years ago, and for a brief moment in time it looked as though the accompanying webOS would be the platform to tackle Cupertino's iOS. However, Android was bubbling under and Palm never made the most of its potential.

The rest is history, but Palm certainly isn't as the company is making a comeback... sort of. After being bought and mishandled by HP, the Palm brand has now fallen under the stewardship of Alcatel OneTouch, and it seems the company is going to brand some of its western smartphones Palm. There will be no webOS, but Palm is coming back and I am hoping we hear something about it at CES next week.
