Today Palm unveiled an email and browsing device that will compliment its Treo line of smartphones. The Foleo, which looks like a laptop, runs a Linux operating system and features instant-on and 5 hours of battery life. In addition to an email application and browser, it will include basic Word, Excel and PowerPoint editing. The Foleo has a 10-inch screen, full-size QWERTY keyboard and weighs 2.5 pounds. It includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for Internet access. The device will sync with both Palm- and Windows Mobile-based Treos, and Palm says that other Microsoft Windows Mobile products should work wth the Foleo with minimal extra steps. Palm also says other smartphone platforms, like BlackBerry OS, may be compatible with the Foleo. It includes a complement of ports and jacks, and will cost $500.
