The Palm enRoute Awards in Mobility Design 2007 were created to showcase innovative ideas that will help Canadians live better, smarter and faster when they travel. Both established designers and future design stars answered our call for original, creative concepts that were guided by the theme of mobility, from reinvented suitcases to next-generation hotels. Turn the page for the winning entries selected by our jury. The Grand Prize winner receives $6,000, airfare and accommodation for three nights at the Orchard Hotel in San Francisco, a meeting with the Palm design team and registration fees for the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design conference. The three runners-up each receive a Treo smartphone equipped with a Palm GPS.
