In its first earnings release since being spun off earlier this month from 3Com Corp., Palm Inc. reported third-quarter net income of $11 million, or 2 cents a share, an increase of 66% from the year-earlier period when it reported net income of $6.6 million.
Excluding costs associated with its separation from 3Com, Palm's earnings for the quarter, ended Feb. 25, were $15.5 million, or 3 cents a share. Palm's revenues for the quarter were $272.3 million, up from $125.9 million a year ago.
