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.

Should I be ashamed since I was kinda looking forward to this? I didn't like that it was tied to a smartphone though. I got a little hands on at this years Linuxworld and I really liked its shape and size; perfect for taking on a plane etc. I'd much rather take one of these than my clunky laptop.

Not at all. I wasn't completely happy with the price, but it looked like the perfect device for what I need when I go on the road -- a featherweight wordprocessor, with all day long batter life, that will allow me to access the web.

In the end, I couldn't wait any longer and bought a TX because it's the biggest screen I could get on a PDA and so far, it's worked very nicely with my bluetooth keyboard, but I really wanted a single unit.
