This is the now dead product:  The Foleo .  It is a laptop thingy, but not a laptop.

“The Foleo was the pet project of Palm founder Jeff Hawkins, who proclaimed in May it was “the most exciting product I’ve worked on in a long time.” The device looked like a small laptop and was meant to work in tandem with a smart phone, allowing users to easily check e-mail and surf the Web.

RIP Foleo!
