This isn't bad news surely, but i'm kind of surprised why it's taken as such a good news. What's his merits in software side(i really don't know)?

As far as Palms hw design.... well they have made some okis looking soap boxes.

He doesn't need to have "merits" in software, in fact as a designer it's better that he doesn't.

Everything about what he did can be seen in webOS.
