    Remember the Palm Foleo? The little netbook that could(n’t)? Apparently Palm’s resurrecting it as a webOS device with a Gobi 3G chipset, ARM CPU, and 8-10 hours of battery life, according to an analyst with Global Equities Research. Read More

  • REDFLY smartphone companion groped by ZDNet

    Matthew Miller over at ZDNet got an early look at the REDFLY Windows Mobile Smartphone Companion, a Palm Foleo-esque device that more or less enlarges your smartphone’s screen to 800 x 480 (8-inch LCD) and gives you a trackpad, larger keyboard, two USB ports (used for charging, mice, flash drives, etc.), and VGA output.

  • Redfly announces a sub-sub-notebook to be shown at CES


    The Foleo was, alas, a non-starter. The subcompact form factor, however, has a champion now in the form of the Asus Eee PC, and Redfly thinks that maybe the time is right for someone to take a shot at the sub-sub-compact. This thing is small enough to fit in your purse, guys, and although it’d be cool if it was running some kind of compact Linux distro, it’s got a custom OS that… Read More

  • Palm's Response To Foleo Delay: Still Shipping On Time

    Somewhat calming news after my tantrum the other day; Palm says that the Foleo will still launch “this summer” and that it hasn’t missed the original shipping date yet.

    As probably the only person on this planet that’s been anxiously waiting for August 22nd, 2007 — the Palm Foleo’s supposed release date — the news has hit me like a ton of low-down, dirty, awful, smelly, rotten, jerky bricks. Looks like I’m not getting my Foleo anytime soon. Good thing I just sold my MacBook. According to numerous reports floating around the… Read More

  • More Details About Palm's Upcoming Foleo

    If you’ve been following news about the upcoming Palm Foleo, you may have noticed that it’s gotten a lukewarm reception from many gadget websites. Common complaints are that it’s underpowered, overpriced, and can’t play videos. For $500 you could get a cheap laptop that does exponentially more than the Foleo can do. That being said, I’m still getting one. Read More

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/452319854 I really have to see Palm’s Foleo before I begin ragging on it, but this new not-a-laptop just wasn’t doing it for me.

  • Meet Palm's Foleo

    Palm’s taking the wraps off its Foleo, and we’ve got some pics. The “smartphone companion” is actually fairly dope, featuring not just Bluetooth but also WiFi. It’s not meant to fully replace a laptop, but if you’re like me, you find lugging your Powerbook around all the time to be burdensome. If I’m just going to be checking email and browsing porn… Read More
