Palm is by far not in its best shape at the moment and it is a big question whether the company can re-invent itself and return to success and profitability. As a result, analysts from Morgan Stanley claim that at least nine companies may be interested in acquiring Palm.

According to Morgan Stanley, Nokia and Motorola are among mobile-phone makers that would gain the most strategic benefit from taking over Palm. Palm may also be a “strategic fit” for Research In Motion and HTC Corp., but there also others, including Dell, Lenovo Group, LG Electronics, Microsoft Corp. and Samsung Electronics, who can benefit from acquisition of  Palm.

“We believe the potential ownership of WebOS would create a more defendable and viable long-term mobile devices business for Motorola,” the Morgan Stanley report said, reports Bloomberg news-agency.

Obviously, almost any hardware and software company that operates on the market of mobile devices would benefit from the acquisition of Palm as it would get a vast patents portfolio along with a pool of engineers.

None of the aforementioned companies have commented on the news-story.

HTC could do with a defensive US patent portfolio. Palm has that.
