looks like some nice features, 128MB of ram, wifi bluetooth, CF SD video out and a 2700G coupled to an intel pxa270 @ 416Mhz

i know i am getting one, its intresting that they say that it wont support bluetooth file trasfers, i hope they are not reinventing the wheel instead of using the bluez stuff.

i belive the NDA is because the device hasent been released and the api for developing applications, i dont belive it will take much to get into this thing, im betting on uboot with 3 flash partions, kernel, rootfs, userfs

i belive most people are missing the point with the foleo, but thats because i use my computers diffrently from most people, i use linux fulltime on nearly all my devices and i do 90% of my stuff on a command line, most of the articles i see are people who want to use it as a normal windows laptop and play youtube on it, i want video out and the ability to watch moives as well as a cmd line and firefox/thunderbird so its the ideal device for me when i need something bigger

when it comes to the foleo i believe the are marketing it wrong by saying companion, just come out and say its a keyboard and larger screen with prettier graphics for your mobile

the one thing it does have over the other two is good looks and the ability (once i am done with it) to get much better battery life. i would sell my Kohjinsha for the foleo (with CF card)

if anything i would compare it to the rest of the market as i wooud compare the Z to the rest of the PDA market (i dont believe th Z and this compete, the z is good for some things and this for others)

Why that? (I'm rather tending towards a Kohjinsha or Data Evolution Cathena which looks similar?)

The main selling point of Palm never was its hardware but the usability of its software that enables ordinary users to do things. With respect to the foleo, I haven't read much about this aspect yet.
