Hewlett-Packard (HP) appears to be adding some management heft to Palm in what could be a sign that it may be serious about this mobile device thing after all.

John Paczkowski at AllthingsD reports that Ari Jaaksi, who recently left as head of Nokia's MeeGo unit, will be going to Palm. Palm is also adding Victoria Coleman, who ran Samsung's R&D center in San Jose.

These two hires indicate that the webOS and Palm may get some love. Paczkowski also notes that HP has been pulling internal expertise into the Palm orbit.
