If you've seen today's tech news or the official Palm Blog, you'll see that my project, the Foleo mobile companion, has been canceled. I'm disappointed in this, but I understand the decision. We weren't ready to go to market with this, and it would hard for Palm to support two different Linux-based platforms going forward. I think we did some really great things with the platform; I'm proud of the concepts and a lot of the execution, but I think the cancellation was the right decision given Palm's future direction for our smartphones.
There's some exciting work here at Palm for me with the new phone platform and I'll be spending the rest of my trip out here looking at various options. I probably won't be able to talk about any of my work here again for a while, as I'll be in secret mode again.
Thanks to all of my supporters and friends online and in real life. ...and no, I can't get you one of our prototype units, although I fully intend on keeping my own devices for my personal use :)
