Today PalmOne becomes Palm again

From the press release via PalmAddicts we read: Today marks the date palmOne, Inc. becomes Palm, Inc. The company today begins trading under the symbol PALM, formerly traded under the Nasdaq ticker symbol PLMO. Accompanying the name change is the release of a new company logo, which will begin appearing on products this fall.

Let's hope PalmOne hasn't been too occupied with the design of their new logo to forget what we are really expecting from them

I think the logo looks more like a toy logo, or something for a low-priced Zire. I'll miss the old one which seemed more "solid and mature".

Not a fan of it either. A gradient sphere? Looks like Photoshop 101 to me

I think its fine. Once they start using the theme Laurens picked up I think it'll be cool to have a Treo under a Palmtree

Ditto. The old logo represented quality to me. Any company that changes their name and logo every other year does not exactly inspire me with confidence.

Exactly. I don't understand why Palm would throw away years of brand-recognition.
