Palm Foleo

They’re calling it a “mobile companion”, but it’s really just a $499 Linux-based compact notebook. The UI is screen-based rather than window-based — the apps are all full-screen. Not shipping until sometime this summer.

It seems to me Palm is trying to reverse the typical relationship, where your phone/PDA is a peripheral to your PC, and instead create a PC that is a peripheral to your phone.
