The Device that never was: Palm Foleo

Well here ya go, the unboxing of the device that never was: The Palm Foleo

Ah a new toy that was never meant to be. What to do, what to do…I know, Play Time.

Here are some unboxing photos of this device that just wasn’t meant to be.

Granted this is only the unboxing but still, there is nothing like playing with a device that was never meant to be; it kinda of reminds me of the Motorola MPx300.

More details to follow on the use of the device. I’ll let everyone know this though, the Foleo reminds me of the Nokia Tablet 700 series in a weird way, it’s nice to surf the internet on so far. :grin:

I can tell you this about the Foleo, the browsing on WiFi isn’t as smooth as it should be. I was expecting it to be a little more peppy if ya know what I mean, but it is just not as smooth as some other devices.

After playing with the Foleo off and on the last couple of days, I really believe this device could have competed with the Nokia based tablets that are out there in the consumer market.

A little surprise for everyone as well…say hello to the Treo 500P!

[Ed note. This first picture of the Treo 500P was removed at the request of Palm shortly after this post went live (although the picture quickly spread all over the internet). It was re-added on March 15, 2008 – well after the AT&T version became available.]

  2. Gravatar Icon 2 Wayne Schulz Oct 3rd, 2007 at 6:45 pm Maybe I’m not searching hard enough – but that’s the first pic I’ve seen online of an AT&T branded Treo (or whatever it’s going to be called).And for a minute I thought the bluetooth symbol in the upper right was a WIFI symbol. Then I remember this was a Palm.
