Bloomberg reports that Palm Inc stock prices have surged after yet more rumours of a Nokia take over.

Nokia have too much on their plate already without having to look after another division of handsets using WebOS. Would Nokia scrap Symbian and Maemo and integrate WebOS into their portfolio? Erm, no.

There’s simply too much invested in Symbian and Maemo.

The Nokia Palm venture was much more plausable back in April (and much before) when hardly anything was known about a phone running Nokia’s proprietary OS, Maemo, or just how brilliant a Maemo Phone could be. Palm’s WebOS was seen as an escape for people were tired of Nokia’s stubbornness with the outdated UI of Symbian smartphones.

But the Maemo 5 powerhouse, N900 even with non-final firmware has proven itself to be a pretty formidable device. What more when Nokia unleash Maemo 6 with Multitouch, and finally Maemo 7? It could spell Nokia being top of the class again. And of course, we’re still yet to see what Symbian^4 is gonna bring to the competition.
