HP hires former HTC exec to head up Palm handset sales

It appears HP had done some early pre-planning of their road-map with the Palm acquisition. About three weeks before HP picked up Palm for $1.2 billion in April, the company recruited Todd Achilles as its vice presdient of telco sales. Todd who? Todd Achilles, the former HTC exec that ran the United States office of HTC in Bellevue, Washington. Prior to that, Todd was also the executive director at T-Mobile USA, working on the company’s handset strategy. We hope that Mr. Achilles will bring his sales and direction know-how, coupled with HP’s brilliant manufacturing prowess and build one fine webOS mobile handset.
