I don't particularly care for the brand either because it was one of those "before my time" companies that I never really built a connection with, and I thought that it would stay that way when Palm eventually died.
A new smartphone that bucks the trend of ever larger mobiles is being launched by a San Francisco-based technology start-up. Now, though, the Palm brand has been resurrected in the form of a new device that aims to make you use your smartphone less often. He is also the brand ambassador for the company and will be wearing the device during warmup games and workout sessions. Well, in a day and age when more and more OEMs are launching phones with bigger screens (albeit with relatively smaller footprints), Palm has launched a new phone that fits easily in your... well... palm. In that case, this device is easy to carry along while you are on a track, or in the gym or even while going for a walk with your dog.
If you're interested, the Palm phone is scheduled to release in November and will cost $349.99.
The $349 gadget, sold only in the U.S. by Verizon Wireless, will combine up with the current smartphone yet has its own cell radio that requires an extra $10 charge on the monthly wireless bill.
The device will cost $349 (£263) and will be available in the U.S., on the Verizon network only, from November. The front and rear sides of the phone features Corning Gorilla Glass.

The big question now is how much this latest kerfuffle will impact his value when he enters the free agent market in November. Did Machado intentionally come in spikes high on the veteran second baseman?
As far as the innards are concerned, the Palm Phone comes powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 435 SoC which is coupled with 3 GB RAM. An 800mAh battery backs the device and is touted by the company to last for more than 3 days on standby and offer an "all-day battery life" on a single charge. It retails for $350 and runs Android 8.1, meaning you can download a fair number of apps on it. The Palm Phone rocks a 3.3-inch LCD display that has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 445 ppi. They didn't reveal many under the hood technical specs, besides the fact that it comes with 32 Gb of internal storage. There's a virtual button at the bottom that serves as the home and multi-tasking button.
There's also a special "Life Mode" that turns off all notifications and even disables the Palm's radios in an effort to help eliminate distractions and focus on what matters.
