I'd just like to point out that somewhere along the way, my name got
attributed to this text. I didn't write this. I actually think the
Foleo can find a market if Palm gets enough people to buy into their
paradigm change. However, since I don't really do the smartphone
thing at all, I doubt I'll be one of them.

(I will also be extremely surprised if the Foleo can't handle audio
or video. The ability to do mobile video is really important to
people if the web reaction is any indication.)
