Sneak Peek at the Palm Foleo

The killer quote:

Would I be willing to buy the Foleo when it comes out?

As a consumer – no. As a regular consumer, I want a fully functional, fully featured device which means more than email, and more than web browsing. Instant on is nice but I can certainly wait the minute it takes for Windows to boot. Now if the device was $200 dollars cheaper, then maybe I’d consider it.

It’s that last sentence — it’s what everyone, and I mean everyone, said:

Now if the device was $200 dollars cheaper, then maybe I’d consider it.

Even those who panned it mercilessly (me me me!) said, well, make it cheaper, and yeah, OK then.

Lost opportunity.
