PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm CEO Ed Colligan has posted a letter to Palm Customers, Partners and Developers on the official Palm blog. In the post, he states Palm will cancel the Foleo mobile companion product in its current configuration, and will undertake efforts to focus entirely on Palm's next-generation (Linux-based too) smartphone platform. My Take: A right move for Palm, the market is not ready for this sort of device.

Maybe toys like the Asus eee could fill the gap.

I'm convinced that there is a market for computers much smaller than laptops and larger than phones.

Maybe the "convergence" is not with phones but instead with large-pocket calculators (Casio, Texas Instruments) and multilingual translators.

IMHO, the main "error" with the Foleo was the insane price.
