Palm has clinched an important patent that relates to P2P data synchronization among several devices like desktop computers, laptops, mobile handsets,etc. The patent application that was filed way back in 2007 and awarded just recently can be a terrific shot in the arm for the now-beleaguered company.
In the patent, the inventors say that their method of data synchronization will enabled data sharing “without the need for a centralized system that keeps track of the shared data.”
The patent awarded to Palm might have just pushed its attractiveness quotient a notch higher among companies looking to buy the company out. What do you think?
