Introducing the 'Palm', a Tiny New Android-Powered Smartphone

Palm is back (sort of), and it built a tiny smartphone sidekick

Will you get this device?

It's shortcomings are apparently its virtue.

The Palm Phone features a 3.3-inch custom-built LCD display that offers a high pixel density of 445 ppi and impressive brightness.

Palm's new Companion phone is supposed to go along with your main smartphone.

So here's something we didn't expect to be saying any time soon - Palm is back, baby! Palm is advertising as a device that you can use when you want to stay present in life.

Moreover, the Palm comes with Android 8.1 operating out of the box and the company has also created a custom skin that can directly take its users to the app tray. Since it is a companion device, Verizon subscribers will be able to use only after availing an add-on on their existing line. At $349, we'll just have to cross our fingers and hope we see the Palm name around a lot more in the future. Since your phone number is linked to both your primary device and the Palm phone, your text messages will automatically sync between both granted you use the Verizon Messages app on both phones. When Life Mode is turned on, not only do notifications get silenced, but all of the wireless radios are also turned off as well. Instead of having its own phone number, the Palm phone co-opts your existing Verizon phone number so you can technically use it away from your main phone if you need to. "It's a much more aggressive way to turn off notifications and deny incoming phone calls". There is an 800mAh battery packed into the device which is claimed to be lasting 8 hours on a single charge. The phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

"There's a single virtual button on the bottom". This mode also extends the battery life of the Palm device to an entire day. Users will have to pay a monthly fee of $10 (about Rs. 700) over and above their current Verizon plan to connect the Palm to the carrier's network, reports CNET. The backside of the phone is fitted with an LED enabled 12-megapixel camera. It also features face unlock for security.

During the late 90s, American firm Palm was known for manufacturing personal digital assistants (PDAs) and mobile phones.
