Palm Foleo To Flop
I know that's a pretty harsh statement, but apparently I'm not the only one of this opinion. Jonathan Greene and Fabrizio Capobianco were pretty disappointed with the new mobile companion device, and it's probably not a good sign when the Palm founder sells 15,000 shares of company stock just before the device was officially shown.
My personal gripes with the device are that it just doesn't scream innovation, something Palm originally had and lost a long time ago. My hopes were that this device would be the rebirth of that creative spirit Palm once had in its early days. And no matter how much Palm dives into Linux and Open Source, a product like this just isn't what most people really need or even want. It's too large, too expensive, and underpowered. If there was an opposite to what Internet Tablets attempt to offer, the Palm Foleo would be it. My message to Palm; Try again and try harder, much harder.
