    Yeah, Hawkins promised to do this a few months ago (read the original article), which is why we published this editorial now.

    Honestly, the anticipation is half the fun. Now I know how the Apple fanboys feel the week before a Stevenote. :D

    Could this be the Palm Foleo?

    Looks fake and a little retro to me. But I tend to be naturally skeptical of purported photos of upcoming Palm devices.

    Where did these come from?

    I found them on a German website: http://www.baetze.com/

    I remember before the LifeDrive came out, people were declaring those pictures as fake or debunked... so you never know...

    This is a great thread and a job well done by the staff, mods and members.

    I will not go into huge detail about what I think the Hawk will but I do think it will be software centric with many, many connectivity options.

    Its good to see palm starting to form a buzz about a product. It has been a long time since I have a little tinge of excitement outside of the fan group. If the Hawk is revolutionary and not just evolutionary, I hope palm can start the momentum in the right direction!

    This is an Intel UMPC prototype by Quanta that's been around for more than 6 months.

    Just Google for these 3 words and you'll find a bunch of this one amongst others.

    You'll also find this quote with pix: "The world's largest contract laptop PC maker is branching out into ultramobile PCs (UMPCs), using a reference design from Intel and software from Yahoo."

    Go here to find it; ALSO scroll 2/3rd down to find more info about the Yahoo software this prototype is supposed to run.

    Debunking the "debunkers", eh? Excellent job!

    Anyway, generating a lot of buzz should better be followed up by some serious revelation soon or otherwise this might easily turn into a boomerang.

    My advice: calm down, take a deep breath. Only 2 planetary revolutions to go, preceding the announced "revolution" in mobile computing - and then we'll see. Hawkins will either once more be seen as a visionary genius or is going to join the league of yesterdays' heroes. I can only hope he was well aware of these consequences when he purposefully chose his "big mystery" strategy.

    greetings
