No, don’t worry, we’re not turning into Engadget. There’s just not much hard news worth blogging at the moment, so here’s another rollout for your amusement from the All Things Digital tech conference. Bigger and less wieldy than a Blackberry but with a fraction of the functionality of a normal computer — meet Foleo, the new “Tweener” device from the makers of the Palm Pilot. It retails at $499 in case you’re one of those people who can somehow afford a handheld device but not a standard laptop and yet simply can’t tolerate anything smaller than a 10-inch screen.
First comes the full promo, which borders on parody, then comes Palm honcho Jeff Hawkins demonstrating one of the device’s key features. I think he’s serious.
