Let's not pretend the new Palm 'phone' is actually a good idea

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

It comes from a startup in San Francisco, which purchased the rights for the name from TCL a year ago. National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry is an adviser to the company on marketing, usability and social strategy and TCL is an investor for Palm. Also, why are there Android apps on the Palm phone if it's supposed to cut down your smartphone usage while you focus on more important things? This new device is pretty tiny that goes easily into the pockets and weighs just 62.5 grams! The device, which goes on sale next month for $350, is not a real smartphone either, so let's not pretend it's a good idea. The Palm Inc was first to introduce personal digital assistant (PDA) device called as the Palm Pilot in 1990. That's right, the new Palm phone shares your primary phone number - it's a Verizon exclusive by the way - and it's meant to help you reduce the time you spend on your primary smartphone. The device comes in an aluminum frame and with the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, and 3GB of RAM. The Palm Phone is packed with a 800mAh battery that promises 3 days of standby time and all-day battery life. Life Mode's notification restrictions are customizable down to the app. There is also 12MP rear camera along with an 8MP camera on the front.

If you're interested, the Palm phone is scheduled to release in November and will cost $349.99.

As unusual as it seems, TCL is launching a new Palm product which is thankfully not running a new version of WebOS but instead has gone with Android 8.1. There's a virtual button at the bottom that serves as the home and multi-tasking button.

'Palm easily syncs to your phone with Verizon NumberShare, enabling you to receive all your texts, alerts, and phone calls. This Palm will fit in your hand and you won't get a lot of things done with the minimalist hardware, providing the similarity to a kitten, including the powerful attraction some will feel towards it. When Life Mode is enabled, the cellular and Wi-Fi radios will disable unless the screen is on and battery life should extend to a full day.
