In a blog posting in Palm's official company blog, Ed Colligan himself, CEO of Palm, yesterday announced the end of the Palm Foleo Smartphone Companion. Interesting enough, the end came before it started. Colligan wrote that it has become clear that the right path for Palm is to offer a single, consistent user experience around Palm's next generation software platform and focus for the new platform development. Of course, Palm will continue to develop products in partnership with Microsoft on the Windows Mobile platform, but from the internal platform development perspective, Palm will focus on only one and that's not the Linux based Foleo - not yet:

"To that end, and after careful deliberation, I have decided to cancel the Foleo mobile companion product in its current configuration and focus all of our energies on delivering our next generation platform and the first smartphones that will bring this platform to market" Colligan continued.

So time to say good bye to something we hardly knew. In my humble point of view not a loss at all but it's definitely a tough decision to pull the plug so close to the release

Cheers ~ Arne
