…before we are completely saturated? Just two weeks before the Canadian launch of the Apple iPhone, Palm has introduced the Foleo. At first glance it looks just like a laptop, but on closer examination it is actually….a miniature laptop! OR a large PDA!

I kind of hope so–I think the ubiquitous BlackBerry could use a real run for it’s money!
