    Yeah - it's funny how everyone is predicting great success with all the markets that palm haven't targeted or mentioned

    They're targeting "executives." I don't recall a minimum salary requirement.

    I threw in the $100 000 to show these people have the resources to expense a sub-notebook of equivalent size, even if its 4 times the price. The price argument does not fly for this group.

    My point was that "executive" is a loose term which could apply to $40,000 managers as well.

    But still, most managers have restrictions on what equipment they can purchase, even if their income is over $100K.

    Hi
    When i said kids I meant kids

    Not sure what age yours was when running after you tube

    Mine banned from you tube

    Hence not so bad

    Kids was meant in sub 10 and less where parents want parental control on where they surf and what they do.

    Imagine a class full of foleos for electronic homework and a wifi access point

    No you tube and internet in sight to distract learning processes

    I know
    I know
    some of us can afford laptops for the same price but one must look at the bigger picture

    i mean I am looking at a kolignshi laptop from dynamism at what 700 - 900 $ running win xp and 5" screen !!!
    Dead slow but does the job for 7 fricking hrs !!!!1

    It depends what grabs you

    Me i saw that lovely april fools joke palm laptop and was reeaally disapointed in this device not comming out
    but I am not blase enough to say it wont ever have a market

    there are some people out there that it will suit their needs - maybe a niche market at that

    But on the bright side now Treos can start minaturising thenselves

    Maybe a treo 680 with no keyboard and a screen like the TX - that would be COOL !!!!!

    Hey MannyPr,

    Thanks for the reference to Arthur Schopenhauer - very interesting stuff!!

    Through wikipedia and available sources at the New York Public Library, I'm in NYC, there's alot of 'food for thought'.

    Thanks again

    Interesting how in the SlashDot thread, the supporters are the hard core, Apple fans. Here at TC, the naysayers are the hard core (or formerly at least ) Palm fans. Steve Jobs knows what his customer base wants. Palm doesn't actually care...and now they seem to be proving they don't even care about their stockholders - well, maybe their newest ones, since they sit on the board!!

    I'm amused to see the sudden burst of new TreoCentral members with 10-20 posts and a join date of May or June 2007 that only post in this forum. Hmmm - why on earth would these people join a wireless phone-based web page to discuss a poorly-conceived laptop? It's beyond coincidence don't you think ttcoupe, zorg, mw22, JasonRM79? Let me welcome you four to Treo Central. Normally I would be glad to have Palm employees dropping in on us to hear our views, but since your only purpose seems to be purposefully ignoring us and trying to generate buzz where it doesn't exist, I wouldn't be upset if you left.

    While it's certainly possible they're employees, I don't think it's a safe assumption.

    The viewership at the Future Treo forum shot to well over a thousand last week. (It's now 38.) It's reasonable to expect that some of those new people might have something to say.
    http://dev.discussion.treocentral.co...d.php?t=144025
    And there are a lot of brand new members in this forum who hate the Foleo as well.

    I'll buy one for the same reason I tried the Sprint update right away, because I'm stupid.

    For those who choose not to read I already said I am not a palm employee. I am a teacher. Specifically, I am a high school math teacher and graduate student in the bay area. For the record I have visited treo-central, palm-inforcer, and palm loyal for many years I just never bothered to join the discussions because I never had anything to say. Having read what I see to be unnecessarily biased and negative comments about the Foleo on here I exercised my right to use my good old first amendment privilege. And, in the course of doing that I am magically a member of the Palm-Alkadia connection. None of my comments are overwhelming for or against this product. It would be nice if we could engage in a civil conversation about a product without resorting to personal attacks.

    You may not agree with my (poorly supported) assumption, but I wouldn't call it unsafe...unless you think my assumption somehow endangers me!!

    Even if they're not Palm employees (are too!), they sure picked an odd location and coincidental time to sing the Foleo's praises...just like the two proselytizers did over at MSMobiles.

    I made no statement about your assumptions. That being said I question your conclusion about me. I can't speak for the others mentioned, but as for me I am a regular Joe, who just happens to be a palm enthusiast too.

    Like many of you I was pissed when I watched D5 and saw the Foleo. Specifically I wanted something that had touch screen. But I gave it some thought and considered how this might be of some use for people on the move a lot.

    Things you totally overlook when you make your "conclusions" about me. For example, I have stated that I think Foleo is way overpriced too. I have also stated that I should have had a faster processor and more on board memory. Lastly, I am bugged that I doesn't have a touch screen so it can function as a tablet too. All that stated, I still think it might be something that some people will be able to use.

    You mean, a forum dedicated to the Foleo and right after they heard about it? Yeah, that's suspicious.
    Are the numerous new members who hate the Foleo employees too?

    You're a high school math teacher and grad student. You joined TreoCentral in time to counter what you "see to be unnecessarily biased and negative comments about the Foleo." You are fair and balanced. You're persistent. You have a strong sense of fairness that makes you feel you might be the leader of a cause. You like to write. You're insistent that your view gets heard. You think the world should be fair, all the time, and find yourself frustrated when that is not the case. You will meet a Gemini that will rock your world. You will come into new money. You are due for a change - let your next travel opportunity be your guide.

    Hell but you okes can be off topic and viccous about a couple of okes that clearly are just saying that

    OK Foleo is cr?? for you high rollers and high end users

    But hey there could be a niche market out there for the little oke to use it who is not a super high geek like ourselves.

    For your info
    my resume is
    Palm Treo 680+4GB SD Card + Treo 650+2GB SD Card + Tx+2GB SD Card, *fired* ->I-Mate PDA2K (Fired), Palm TC(wife), Palm T3 + 1GB Panasonic SD Card (Son), Palm III pensioned battery expiry - funeral service held

    Been a member of Brighthand from Apr 2003

    Just never had anything to say

    Other than now in that I do believe that us serious palm enthusiats are gravely disappointed about the foleo expecting something like a umpc like the april fools joke on palminfocenter laptop derivative

    But clearly there will be a market for the foleo for non tech people

    AND THAT IS WHY I ADDED ME 2c AS DID JASON79

    So There

    PS Been a member of palminfocenter for ever as well !!

    There is no doubt there is a niche market, but Palm needed a new mass market product. If they wanted niche, why did they not release a Treo with GPS. The market is larger for that.
