I was astonished when I read that Palm cancels Foleo just before starting to ship it. The reason sounds like an excuse: ‘…it has become clear that the right path for Palm is to offer a single, consistent user experience around this new platform[WindRiver] design and a single focus for our platform development efforts.

What have happened? Who knows… The Foleo device were going to face a very hard competition with the new low-end laptops. It sounds like they are rethinking the product. Meanwhile, this cancellation has cost to Palm 10 million dollars.
