Palm To Resurrect Foleo As ARM-Based Linux Netbook

According to an analyst from Global Equities Research, Palm is planning to reintroduce its Foleo device as a netbook. Take a look:

The $399 device is a renewal of Palm’s “mobile companion” device that two years ago fell off the face off the earth almost immediately after its release. The Linux-based machine required Bluetooth connection to a Palm phone for Web access.

Will the Palm Foleo see success the second time around? It was originally meant for mere email, but perhaps in its second coming we’ll see some new features and capability. GER already thinks it will be using a Qualcomm Gobi 3G chip, ARM CPU, and manage 8-10 hours of battery life.
