The Palm phone is a phone for your, er, phone

Palm Phone Resurrected As A Verizon Exclusive Connected Device

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

The Palm features a 3.3-inch touch display in a frame that's about the size of a credit card.

This new Palm is completely reinventing the old Palm.

A tiny Android smartphone created to be a "companion phone" to a full-sized device has been launched in the USA - using the brand name Palm. Designed by a San Francisco-based startup, the new phone can be used as a companion device with your main phone.

Simply called "The Palm", this is a perfectly functional Android 8.1 smartphone with a custom skin and it can run the full version of your favourite Android apps.

Palm wants to bring "people out of their tech and into their lives", by giving your phone a simpler, smaller companion.

Palm Phone Resurrected As A Verizon Exclusive Connected Device

The 3.3-inch full touchscreen promises the "full Android experience." should you want it - or as much of the experience as you can get with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor and a tiny 800 mAh battery. It has a 12MP rear-facing snapper and an 8MP selfie camera. So what should an individual do when their mobile device is as much a daily survival tool as it is a phone, but it can't always be easily carried around given the current trend for the-bigger-the-better type phones?

During the late 90s, American firm Palm was known for manufacturing personal digital assistants (PDAs) and mobile phones. For one, its octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset with 3GB of RAM is probably a fair bit slower than whatever's powering your main phone, so the sort of multitasking you might be used to could be a little hard here.

To do that, the Palm Phone has a couple of interesting features built in.

It seems to be running with a cloned SIM setup or eSIM variant on the Verizon network, with a $10 per month plan sending your calls, texts and notifications from your other phone to this one. It's sold exclusively by Verizon in the U.S. for $349. First off, it doesn't appear that you can buy this phone outright. And it's working: on average, people check their smart phone every 15 minutes.If you think about it, your phone works like a slot machine, in the sense that you pull the lever and are excited by the prospect of what you could get. And, at least while the Verizon exclusivity lasts, likely to sell just as well as the last few Palms that have come before it. Or the weekend when you're at the big game. It's hitting the market at a time when large phones have become the industry standard, but the point isn't to replace your enormous Galaxy Note or iPhone-it's to provide a complementary device that helps you disconnect during downtime.
