Palm is just one of the smartphone makers that the iPhone-Android duo killed over the past decade - the list also includes several noteworthy names like BlackBerry, Nokia, and Microsoft's smartphone efforts.
'There's a time to lean into our devices and a time to lean into the world, ' Palm said.
Palm, a California based company, launched its first smartphone Palm Phone.
In other words, the Palm Phone will have the same phone as the main smartphone of the user. Yesterday, the company introduced the "Palm", a credit card-sized phone that you can add to your Verizon plan when you think your phone is getting a little too involved in your life. This mode also extends the battery life of the Palm device to an entire day. This seems doomed to fail, even though I'm sure there are quite a few people who'd love to buy a relatively cheap, well-designed full Android phone that isn't a surfboard. Each has a screen that measures five or six inches diagonally, a ecosystem of almost identical apps, and a rectangular body that is now little more than pure screen. There is no fingerprint scanner but you do get face unlock.
TCL, which picked up Palm in 2014 after it was dumped by HP, is manufacturing the imaginatively-branded "Palm phone", which the firm is touting as a companion for your primary device, rather than a replacement.
In 2018, where the smartphone is all about the six-inch screen, TCL has made a decision to take us back to 2008 - half the display span, a tiny battery, but a promise of all-day battery life and multiple days on standby. Instead, the Palm phone is meant to be like a sidekick to your other, larger main phone. Since there are no volume buttons, you need to swipe down the quick settings panel to adjust that. And finally, why is this Palm phone trying so hard to look like a mini iPhone X with an interface similar to the Apple Watch?
Why Palm finds it necessary to offer the same functionality in the form of an even smaller smartphone is unclear. Before it shut down in 2011, the company brought some fantastic innovations to the mobile digital device industry that inspired features of today's phones. That's a device, at least on paper, that might curb your screen addiction for real. It retails for $350 and runs Android 8.1, meaning you can download a fair number of apps on it.
