The Palm Foleo gains remote access capabilities provided by LogMeIn

Palm today announced its new Foleo Mobile Companion supports remote connectivity capabilities. LogMeIn provides the remote connectivity services. The Palm Foleo includes the LogMeIn application, but the remote PC requires the application installed as well.

LogMeIn offers a free version of its remote connectivity application for Windows users. However, the free version of LogMeIn features limited functionality and only allows remote access to a computer. LogMeIn Pro, a monthly subscription based application, expands the remote capabilities. LogMeIn Pro allows users to transfer files, remotely print, guest invites, file synchronization and 256-bit SSL security encryption.

"The Foleo is the perfect device for mobile professionals who want to travel lighter and carry only what they absolutely need," said Mark Bercow, senior vice president of business development for Palm, Inc. "By adding LogMeIn to the Foleo, users can travel with the essentials, but still have access to files and documents left behind."

Palm previously announced the Linux based Foleo Mobile Companion last May. Palm designed the Foleo as a companion to Smartphones. The Foleo features a 10-inch display, full-size keyboard, Bluetooth, WiFi and instant on/off capabilities. The device also weighs in at 2.5 pounds and has an estimated battery life of up to 5 hours.

Expect the Palm Foleo Mobile Companion to hit retail with the LogMeIn application later this summer.

But it is not a Jedi yet...

Not with Acer breathing down its neck with a $199 offering.

Where is that? I really want a 11-12" underpowered laptop for that much if true.

Not talking about the Asus Eee PC are you?

I can't stand freaking monthly (or other interval) payments anymore. Lets pay monthly for a cell phone plan, data on top of that, video games, Xbox Live, GPS, satelleite radio, Antivirus, and now "Remote Desktop Connection". Soon I feel I am going to have to pay monthly to use Windows or Office and to access my MP3 files on the MP3 player. This business model is the biggest turn off ever. I swear if CS or UT went to a subscription system, that'd be it for me I would have no reason to play games on my computer anymore.

Trust your feelings, Luke!

That's exactly what Microsoft wants. With OS and Office releases coming less and less frequently, their bottom line will begin to hurt. So if they charge users a monthly fee for the rest of time, no more income problems! (Also, their revenue stream will be more predictable, which makes the finance people and investors happy as it leads to fewer quarterly report surprises.)
