Palm Foleo hits eBay [Update: Sold for $750!]

Palm's Foleo was - depending on who you ask - either the ideal companion device, cruelly axed before it had a chance to shine, or a pointless distraction for the company's engineers and implicit in their downward spiral.  Either way, if you've always wanted to own one yourself, now you have the chance.  Ixle picked up a Foleo a month or so ago and has been blogging about it ever since; now he's putting the Palm pseudo-netbook back up on eBay.

Palm Foleo Dead but apparently not entirely forgotten

So the Palm Foleo was going to be this amazing device, it was going to be the thing that took smartphones to the next level.

Palm Foleo gets delayed – does anyone really care?

I hope you weren't too excited to get your hands on the new Palm Foleo. I would actually be quite surprised to find that anyone is all that excited about it to be honest. Anyway, if you were hoping to get yourself one, you're going to have to wait for at least another month, maybe more.

Palm just finished up their webcast a little while ago, and after seeing what it can do and how easy it is to use, I may have to get one of these when they come out. I'll give you the highlights of the webcast.

Jeff Hawkins, founder of Palm talked at length about the overall focus of the company. 15 years ago they started Palm with the idea that the future was in mobile computing. They wanted to build a device that could do many of the same functions that a desktop or laptop computer could do, but small enough to fit into your pocket.

For all my initial misgivings, the Palm Foleo seems to be a pretty gorgeous device. I guess we'll have to wait and see what exactly can be run on the new Linux-based OS.
