On May 31st
, 2007 I mentioned
the Palm Foleo was doomed. Specifically I wrote the following:
It seems doomed to me but perhaps Palm can morph it to be something useful down the line. But then again, I can't see what that will be.
I finished off the post with:
Palm would have been much better off making a truly functional ultra-mobile PC as if there is a market here that is going to be it.
In today’s news
we learn the Foleo is now being discontinued making it one of the shortest product launches to failures in history. The company is going to relaunch Foleo II at some point in the future but this is a mistake unless it is an UMPC.
