Similar in some respects to the $300 Asus Eee sub-notebook -- even down to the Linux OS and solid-state storage -- the Foleo was unique in one respect: it was designed to work primarily with Palm smartphones. Equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth, the Foleo would tether to a Palm Treo for email synchronization, but not to other manufacturers' devices. Details of the Foleo's hardware configuration were never revealed.
