Palm not doing so good

September 7, 2007

Recently Palm the same company that used to be famous for handhelds like the Palm pilot isn’t dong as well as it used to do.  A few years ago palm had an idea to make a small laptop an ultraportable at around $200 cheaper than a regular laptop.  Their idea may have been good, but there was too much competition and the competition is better.  The Palm laptop called Foleo only had basic software, programs like email, web browser and word processing.  When for only a few hundred more dollars the competition Microsoft has much more.  Almost everyone uses Windows on laptops and Windows computers can run every useful application ever created and more, while Palm has an overpriced laptop with basic functionality a bad deal for only a small discount.  It is appropriate that Palm stopped this before it even was released, because it was bad and they knew that.
