Palm announces more software support for Palm Foleo companion
Palm has announced support from two software makers to its new Palm Foleo mobile companion platform.

Six Apart, a company that specialises in blogging software and related services, is supporting the Palm Foleo with its range of blogging services, including Vox, LiveJournal, TypePad and Movable Type. With these services available on the Foleo, users can keep blog and journal entries up to date and stay current with their communities while on the go.

TealPoint Software will offer Foleo customers a full suite of new security, entertainment and productivity applications, including TealSafe, TealPaint, TealDiet, SudokuAddict and ShortCircuit, with more applications to follow.

The Palm Foleo mobile companion runs on a Linux-based platform, and provides instant on access to a set of data constantly synchronise with people's smartphones. A large screen displays and wireless email are its main selling points, plus the five hour battery life.

The device stays synchronized via Bluetooth wireless technology and uses the smartphone’s radio or the Foleo’s built-in Wi-Fi radio for general Internet connectivity.

Foleo mobile companions work with Palm’s Treo smartphone in both its Palm OS and Windows Mobile versions. But Palm says most smartphones based on Windows Mobile should work with little or no modification. Smartphones based on operating systems from Research in Motion, Apple, and Symbian likely can be supported with a modest software effort. The Foleo’s synchronization architecture is open, and Palm expects to work with third-party developers to support as many smartphones as possible.
