One has to look at this thing in real life, just to visualize how cute it is. Smartphone company Palm unveiled its latest creation; an ultra-mobile, ultra compact smartphone.
The perfect way to describe this device is a mix between a smartwatch and a smartphone. There are some impressive people behind Palm, from Frog Design to Samsung. Palm looks like someone took a shrink ray and blasted it at an iPhone, shrinking it to just 3.3-inch display.
The whole device can fit perfectly in a person’s device, no surprises there. Funny enough, the first iPhone had a display size of just 3.5 inches, and was a thing of the future at that time,11 years ago.
Now Palm is trying to revitalize the nostalgia people felt when they first held the iPhone in their hands.
Palm is offering its latest creation at the price of $349. The price isn’t too bad, considering that it’s a novelty item, but it will still function as a capable smartphone. The real problem, however, is that it’s a Verizon exclusive.
So anyone who is not on the network, cannot buy the phone. Those who subscribe to the network will have to pay an additional $10 per month until the contract expires. Most users will also need to get reacquainted with using smaller phones.
The phone comes packed with Android 8.1. Palm has designed a custom UI. Users will be taken straight to the app tray when they turn on their screens. Users can rearrange these apps according to their personal preference.
Luckily these apps will be the full smartphone version. The phone features a SnapDragon 435, 32 GB storage, and 3 GB RAM. The phone has an 8 MP front camera and a 12 MP rear camera. So the phone isn’t shy in the camera department.
The phone is backed by TCL but Palm will remain independent of the Chinese Mobile Giant’s stronghold.
So now the question arises who will buy this. Well its simple, anyone who has $350 to spare, loves cute things and has immense joy in owning the latest smartphones. Especially if they are ultra compact smartphones.
