Palm and webOS product auction reminds us of the forgotten Foleo

18 Sep


It’s funny how, as time passes, we grow fonder of gadgets that were once disregarded. Nerd nostalgia has a knack of trumping common sense and draining wallets, which is why we’re almost hesitant to bring this auction of Palm and webOS gear to your attention. Featuring the collection of a former webOS employee, you’ll find everything from t-shirts, posters and other branded paraphernalia, through to a mint-condition Palm VII PDA, 4G TouchPads and a range of mobiles, including many from the long-forgotten Pre series. The prize piece, however, has to be the boxed, unused Palm Foleo complete with an hour of phone time with one of the product’s OG engineers, who also “has apps for you,” apparently. All money raised from the auction is going to a charitable cause, which totally justifies whatever exaggerated sum Palm’s nigh-mythical flop ends up going for. by engadget
