Engadget writes Palm decided to kill the Foleo:
Palm CEO Ed Colligan just posted a message to the company's official blog stating that they've decided to cancel the Foleo mobile companion "in its current configuration" in order to "focus all of our energies on delivering out next generation platform and the first smartphones that will bring this platform to market." In a way we're sort of disappointed that we'll never at least get to play with one and put it through its paces, but it's definitely the right move -- Palm needs to focus on one thing right now, and that's coming out with a category-killing smartphone.
However, it's possible that the Foleo concept will return in the future. Colligan says they'll do a Foleo II based on the platform of their next-generation smartphones.
