Looking at just the pictures, it's amazing how much it looks like my HP Mini (1033cl) netbook.... the outside clamshell's shape and the layout of ports on the side are almost identical.

Never mind, its the Foleo

Compare fig 3 to foleo pics.

Be really cool to get the Foleo to work as a webos phone display and keyboard or even replace the screen with a touchpad (like the Dockintosh

.......too bad a Foleo is 400 bucks

Got me into searching for trademarks. Look at how many other TouchPad versions there could be (middle of the page): Record List Display

Interesting to know that trademarks for "Made for {webOS device name here}" registrations are still live.
