After 7 years, Palm releases a new phone...somewhat

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

Or the weekend when you're at the big game.

It's shortcomings are apparently its virtue. Unlike in a conventional Flight Mode, you can choose what gets through, and when. Poor reception to Palm and webOS led HP to sell the brand to TCL. If you don't want to take your smartphone on your workouts, just leave it at home or use a smartwatch. It runs on Android Oreo 8.1, and it can install any Android app you want.

Editor's Note: As this phone is an exclusive with telco Verizon in the USA we are unlikely to see it in Australia anytime soon. 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. The mini phone syncs with your regular smartphone (either Android or iOS), which means that the devices share the same number and both receive calls, text messages, and other alerts.

Palm is just one of the smartphone makers that the iPhone-Android duo killed over the past decade - the list also includes several noteworthy names like BlackBerry, Nokia, and Microsoft's smartphone efforts.

There is a feature added to this device, called Life mode, which turns on the do not disturb mode on the device and the user won't be receiving call or notifications. The Palm Phone is packed with a 800mAh battery that promises 3 days of standby time and all-day battery life. However, it is only today that the intention has turned into a reality in the form of a phone that is simply called the Palm.

Inside, the Palm phone is powered by a Snapdragon 435 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

"There's a single virtual button on the bottom".

The 12-megapixel rear camera probably won't be producing photos that impress, but may get the job done anyways. 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. That means no notch, but it also means it's a hell of a lot less secure than Apple's dedicated face ID.

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