The Palm Foleo mobile companion may have been designed to rely heavily on a smartphone, but it just took two steps toward independence.
Third-party application companies Astraware Limited and MotionApps recently announced the first titles they’ve created exclusively for the Foleo: Astraware Sudoku, Astraware Solitaire, and mDayscape Personal Information Manager. Calling the Foleo "an ideal companion for high-powered, time-starved executives," Astraware’s chief technology officer believes the two games to be a great way to unwind after work. Being obsessed with Sudoku myself, for me the games would be better diversions than after-work rewards. That’s why I’d need mDayscape to offset all of my lost productivity. It includes a "tightly integrated" contacts list, calendar, and task list that "enhances the user experience in a continued shift away from the desktop and toward a smartphone as a center of computing."
I don’t know about you, but now I’m kind of starting to want one.[TreoCentral]
