Palms Down: Mobile Hardware Guru Jon Rubenstein Leaves HP

HP’s mobile era is over.

Jon Rubenstein, the HP executive to lead the charge against Apple’s iPad devices, has left the company as of Friday morning.

An company spokesman confirmed to Wired in an interview that the mobile hardware guru, once a star at Palm when that company was still a contender, was no longer with Hewlett-Packard.
To put things into even clearer perspective: The final nail in Palm’s coffin comes to two years to the day that Steve Jobs announced the iPad.
