    Apparently Palm is forging ahead with the Foleo take 2...

    while I am truly not rabidly anti-Foleo... I'm still thinkin': Are they crazy ? Don't they have better ways to use what precious resources they have ? Also I wonder how it is that they feel fine about leaking out info and details about the Foleo (and Foleo 2) months or even years in advance, yet they are so, so tight-lipped about future Treos and other smartphone products. Why does this gross inconsistency serve their best interests ? And mostly, shouldn't they be working that much harder on products that are more likely to win big rather than products that even they acknowledge are not going to sell in great numbers ? Sometimes I just don't get them...

    Pre-announcing a future product hurts sales of current products in the same category as people don't want to buy something they know will be obsolete at a definite future date. But Palm doesn't sell any products that would be hurt by a Foleo leak. No one is going to avoid buying a Treo just because they know the Foleo will come out soon.
