The road has been paved. Consumer awareness is out there. Customers KNOW tablets exist now thanks to iPad.
At the time of the Foleo, it was a foreign concept that was at entirely the wrong time. Palm was (surprisingly) a little ahead of itself.
A comparison of the PlayBook to the Foleo is like comparing a 747 to failed first attempts at flight. A lot has happened since, and the market has now proven that it is ready for tablets in the mainstream.
Product timing can be everything sometimes. Anyone remember the Apple Newton? great device, I had one. Apple killed the overpriced wonder and Palm ran with the concept and made the PDA a success
