    • Add touch sensitive screen
    • Take away the keyboard (or at least make it detachable)
    • Add note taker apps (both in digital ink and using hand reco)


    and you have addressed a functional business problem no one else has nailed.

    Sure, there are the windows tablet PCs. But they are large by comparison. Plus they are not instant on -- which is key if one is going to replace hardcopy notepads with something that is chip-based.

    I would buy this in an instant....

    A device like this would be my dream device. Too bad Palm missed the boat on this one... The old Handheld PC Pro's did handwriting recognition very well, with very little processing power 7 years ago. So this thing could do it...

    Something like this? Except they'd also have to make a left-handed version ;-).

    The WM handwriting recognition software works extremely well, and there is nothing to learn too (unlike grafitti). The "block" recognition mode is a marvel... Yeah, I too feel Palm missed the boat.

    Soon WM will be sporting voice recognition (don't know if it's already there).

    I absolutely share your views. I would add to your list.
    1) Add a Palm OS emulator so that ALL my Palm apps. will run on it.
    2) Add printing capabilities (bluetooth & USB)

    I like that with a keyboard that folds backwards (behind itself) when not in use.

    yes yes yes I had been thinking "wouldn't it have been better if the foleo allowed the treo to dock to it so that you were still just carrying one device?" And here it is...
