From Computerworld: Palm purchase a risky move for HP, analysts say – Computerworld

A team of five IDC analysts said HP has only a one in four chance that the acquisition will prove a success. In the event that the acquisition proves successful, though, HP’s bet will pay off 20 times, they added in an IDC research note […] Ken Dulaney, an analyst at Gartner Inc. also sees the Palm acquisition as risky for HP […] Jack Gold, an analyst at J. Gold Associates, expressed mild reservations about the deal […]

This is exactly what I thought after reading the news.
