The Official Palm Blog: A Message to Palm Customers, Partners and Developers:

“I have decided to cancel the Foleo mobile companion product in its current configuration and focus all of our energies on delivering out next generation platform and the first smartphones that will bring this platform to market.”

I’ve been sat here for a couple of minutes trying to work out what to say to this, and the best I can manage is “what the hell…?”

To announce a major product, then cancel it just before launch on grounds which should have been obvious before it was originally announced makes Palm look extremely stupid. Although, arguably, not as stupid as launching Folio – a product which no one seemed keen on apart from Ed Colligan and Jeff Hawkins.
