We expected just as much, but now it's in writing: Palm sent us an official response to our gently-worded "assimilate or die" editorial. It goes as follows:

"Palm has always been committed to open platforms for developers. And Palm has the added differentiation of being able to tightly integrate the software platform with our hardware design, which we believe gives us an advantage in delivering a great user experience.

Palm customers have benefited from the availability of Google services on Palm's platform, such as Google Maps for mobile on Palm OS. And we look forward to further collaboration with Google to offer great user experiences on Palm products."

While we're glad they responded, we really hope we don't have to wait a year and a half for Palm to prove us all wrong here.
