Foleo gets canned

Comments

FoleoPalm CEO Ed Colligan has announced the last-minute cancellation of the Foleo, what was to be Palm’s new smartphone companion. Ed cites the difficulties of simultaneously developing two platforms as the biggest reason for calling the project off, but he’s adamant that a Foleo II will come into the picture after their new handheld OS is all polished off and settled. Hardly anyone was looking forward to the $499 pseudo-laptop, and others thought that ditching the project was key to Palm’s survival, but the fact that they’re still clinging to the idea of a smartphone companion is a little disturbing.

    Why can’t this syncing functionality be rolled into the PC/Mac syncing app and instead improved upon instead of reinventing the wheel? This was a ridiculous idea to begin with and having a Foleo II in the wings just goes to show they just don’t get it.
