2007 and all that

Well, 2007 is nearly over. It has been an odd year in mobile computing with half starts and promises a lot of the time.

We expected the much hyped Foleo, then it was rapidly cancelled. Although we were told it wasn't a laptop, it looked a lot like one to me.

The Palm told us they were going to launch a new OS based on linux with the first devices coming in late 2007. This has gone back too now.

Google has promised to bring its own open source mobile OS to the market. Who knows what that will bring?

So 2008 has lots to look forward to, or so it seems.

Perhaps a new OS from Palm? Maybe Google's Android? New devices from Palm and not just more smart phones? The Apple iPhone SDK and the possibility of native applications?
