Last week, Palm, Inc. announced that it is shutting down its line of retail stores later this month. At that time, news reports indicated that this would include the company’s kiosks in some major airports.

However, this was not correct. When Palm shuts down its stores, the closure will not affect the Palm-branded kiosks. These are not actually owned by Palm, but are operated under its brand by a company called Airport Wireless, and are therefore unaffected by Palm’s recent decision to shutter its retail operations.
According to a spokesperson for APW, these stores will continue to operate with their current product line, including all Palm devices and branded accessories.
