    I can't imagine you're even close, but nothing I can think of is better.

    Somehow I think we're being somewhat duped. I think whatever this device is, it will be much closer to a smartphone than we hope. And I hope I'm wrong!

    Thanks for the article. Seems like reasonable speculation, but I'd rather see lots of built-in flash and some variety of SD card slot (even micro would be ok with 8 GB cards in the works) rather than a prone-to-failure, battery-hungry hard disk.

    Three possibilities:

    It's a scooter!

    It's a sled!

    It's a cookbook!

    Any device with a flexible, low power screen, detachable or not would be first to market and best of breed. Bring it in without requiring the consumer to take out a home equity loan and you are golden.

    That being said, I would be EXTREMELY surprised if Palm was the first to put out a device using this technology.

    no, it is unique, remember. Maybe it is all three at once!

    I checked the allthingsd website and saw the schedule, yes they do list Hawkins as a speaker but as far as times of who is going to speak when, its VERY generic. At least on the website.

    Ill see if I can do some more sleuthing to find out when Hawkins is actually set to speak.
    ONE can be spelled as NEO.
    There is no spoon.

    Do any of the editors/contributors for TC have a pass?

    Dieter & Mike,

    Great article, and thanks for the mention. I strongly suspect the name will be Foleo and it will be a new form factor that plays on the "folding" idea. Your speculation is as good as any I've read elsewhere and accounts for all of the different pieces of the puzzle.

    I'd also like to point out this statement made by Peter Skillman in his Palm Analyst Day presentation that Treo Central covered back in 2005 and referenced in this post:

    "When we talk about mobile computing, most people still think about a laptop. But we know that mobile computing is really something that goes in your hand, and that the next thing, the sort of next platform or category of products that we may create will be perhaps some combination of these two because there's an incredible need, set of needs that aren't being met by the existing products. And so if you look at those needs and focus on the customer experience, that's how you can continue to deliver value to your customers year after year."
    Emphasis in bold is mine. He seems to be suggesting something along the lines of what you've outlined in the article.

    Tomorrow will be interesting for sure, and I'm fairly confident we won't be disappointed.

    Dieter...It looks like Miradu's author page was linked wrong. Should go to author id 35.
