"Verizon Launches Palm with small 3.3" HD Display & Android 8.1

Palm is back (sort of), and it built a tiny smartphone sidekick Palm Phone hands-on: an Android phone for your phone

In other words, the Palm Phone will have the same phone as the main smartphone of the user. The miniature Palm handset has been priced at $350, which is roughly Rs. 25,800 on conversion, and will be sold starting November exclusively via Verizon Wireless in the US. It weights a super slim 2.2 ounces and will come in black with titanium or gold metal surrounds.

The Palm Ventures Group acquired the rights to the Palm trademark from TCL which was bought by them in 2014 from HP.

Palm the brand behind PDA's (personal data assistants) that were all the rage in the 90s is back from the dead.

In the age of Galaxy Note 9 or iPhone XS Max, Palm phone is undoubtedly a vivid addition to the latest tech lineup.

"Palm envisions you using this phone as your secondary device, one which you bring with you on weekend adventures, vacations, hikes, or during other times when having your all-encompassing main smartphone would either be impractical or unnecessary".

But the Palm Companion comes with a "Life" mode that silences all your notifications and even mutes any calls so you can focus on things in the real world - when you are out with friends, for example. Despite the Palm appearing to be a simpler, smaller replacement for the overkill phone you have, it's actually a gadget created to tether you even more tightly to the more expensive device you already own. If you are someone who wears a smartwatch as a companion for your smartphone then this new Palm phone will be a similar companion.

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, and 3GB of RAM.

For photography, the Palm Phone comes with a 12MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front.

With a 8cm display, it's just 0.2-inches smaller than the original iPhone. The decision of the manufacturer to use such an interface seems quite logical since the new product is something average between modern smartphones and smartwatches - apparently, the standard Android desktop is not suitable for a 3.3-inch screen. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.2 LE, single-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, GLONASS, and a USB Type-C port. Whether that's a bad thing is totally up to you since a lot of people like Verizon's apps. Users will be taken straight to the app tray when they turn on their screens. "Presumably, another even smaller phone".
