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.

I guess I didn't write that right, I guess what I was saying, the foleo was unique in that it's "standby" didn't drain battery(well, as much as a lith-ion on the shelf would), unlike that of a true laptop, which has to keep the memory powered to have standby functionality - a feature that I sorely wanted in a device. I'd like to take a device a week or two from its last charge and turn it on in a split second fire off an email and back off again.
