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 keep seeing people say that it required a smartphone for mail(or even required a palm phone specifically), but I can't find anything on the foleo that backs that up, and I especially question that when they said it featured wifi.
