What would it be like if Apple bought Palm

I think that it might be fantastic if Palm was bought by Apple. The idea of a newer updated version of the Newton, with all the design of the current Apple range together with the form factor and simplicity of the Palm. Combined I think they would be very compelling.

I doubt it would happen, but it is a cool idea. For ages, I've thought that Apple should release a PDA / Handheld type device. Something that is like the iPod but with a keyboard and a bigger screen. Something along the lines of a Mac Nano (as opposed to an iPod Nano). The Mac Nano would be like a PDA but maybe a bit bigger. The size of a Nintendo DS maybe. It would have a keyboard and the usual Wifi / Bluetooth etc and run a version of the mac os and small version of all the core mac apps like iMovie, iPhoto, Garageband etc.

Now I'd pay good money for that.
