    This device can't be the full story

    Hawkins then returned to a theme that he's mentioned in the earlier hints he'd given about the Foleo. Imagine if you had "a ton of storage, a ton, basically unlimited storage" on your smartphone. Add that to the fact that you're no longer as constrained by all of those "tradeoffs" that usually apply to the smartphone's design. "I have to just give you a tease here. But that's the direction we're thinking." Hawkins would say no more.
    The only thing that makes sense is some kind of online service. The Blackberry was successful due to the 'middleware' allowing push email. The Foleo may be the front end for some kind of back-end data service wich it connects to via your phone or WiFi.

    OK then, seems like I wasn't that far off in the OP after reading the above in the TC Hawkins interview?
