Long thought dead smartphone pioneer Palm has been reborn with the launch of the mobile device (also called Palm) This is kind of a mixture between the phone and smart watch. New palm palm is basically the smallest phone that syncs with your main phone, in the same way smartwatch. Supposed to be a way to disconnect from the digital world, but is lugging around another device to the right of way to it?
Measuring just 96.6 x 50.6 x 7.4 mm (3.8 x 2 x 0.3) weight 62.5 G (2.2 oz), the palm is almost two thirds the size of most flagship phones. Most of the other specifications requested by the very bottom – it sports a 3.3-in LCD screen, a modest Qualcomm 435 processor, 3 GB of RAM and a 800 mAh battery.
But the palm does not skimp on everything. 12 mega pixel main camera is more or less on a par with many other phones, as is the 8-MP selfie cam. It’s a IP68 waterproof and dust resistance features of the face of the open operating system Android.
Since that small screen may be hard to the palm can be navigated with voice commands through Google Assistant quick action menus and a gesture pad.
Where things get interesting is in how you are supposed to use it. Palm (the company), Palm (device) is not intended to replace your primary phone, but intended as a companion. After syncing the two devices calls and notifications will be forwarded to the palm, so you can leave a huge phablet in the region, just slip the palm in a pocket when out for a run or go out at night.
In support of this idea, the palm of the so-called life mode where you can mute all but the most important notifications so you can “stay present in the moment.” Users can choose what is important, so support from your husband will get through while those endless food photos from a friend Sha story can wait until later.
All of this seems a noble goal – who doesn’t loathe catch dinner where everyone is staring at the phone? – But we are not convinced that buy and carry another mobile device is the right solution.
The text of the call increasingly is also is only possible through Verizon NumberShare it seems that the palm will not be more useful to you if you don’t already have a Verizon phone number – or live outside the United States in this regard.
Palm apparently will be available in November for US$349.99.
