This Tiny Smartphone Can Now Be Your Standalone Option


April 23, 2019 Briefings By

Smartphone screens are only getting bigger, which is great for catching up on Game of Thrones but not necessary when it comes to answering email and queuing up a pre-run playlist. That’s where Palm comes in. The device started as a companion to your smartphone, but it’s finally available as a primary smartphone option that comes with its own phone number and data plan.

Measuring 3.8 by 2 inches — that’s roughly the size of a credit card — Palm is perfect for active lifestyles. It’s water and dust-resistant, while new software updates have extended the battery life to three-plus days for standby time. An improved rear camera offers 12-megapixels and includes improved HDR, color balance and low light performance. With all the Android apps you’re used to, Palm has made it easy to size down your smartphone — especially since it’s on sale for $199 until May 1.
