Palm Cancels Foleo

6 September 2007

The Palm Foleo was created as a sort of sub-laptop device – something easier to enter data into than your Treo, but easier to lug around than a laptop.  What it ended up as was a completely pointless device.  Carrying one around is basically no different than carrying a laptop – without the functionality, of course.  Overpriced, underpowered, and pointless pretty much sums it up.  Fortunately the execs at Palm figured this out before actually launching the Foleo to the public – though apparently the R&d for the device cost them a cool $10 million.  Good to see Palm dropped it before they wasted any more time and money.  C’mon Palm – now it’s time to work on a new OS, and some new Treo models.
