Colin Byrne emailed me the link and details to some specifications over at the United States Patent and Trademark Office of a possible new Palm device. The general description reads, Compact palmtop computer system and wireless telephone with foldable dual-sided display. Here is an abstraction from the information posted "The present invention is a compact personal digital assistant (PDA) and cellular telephone with foldable dual-sided display. By utilizing flexible display technology, both a PDA and a cellular telephone are incorporated into one device. In a closed state, in one embodiment, the present invention corresponds to the form used for typical cellular telephone use (e.g., candy bar size). In an open state, in one embodiment, the present invention corresponds to the form used for typical PDA use by providing an enlarged viewing area. The present invention provides the benefit of two distinct devices in one device by allowing for common operations and functionality without compromising the respective form factor of either device."
