While the world is moving in the direction of increasing the screen size of a mobile phone, Palm makes the step back — literally. New “ultra-mobile” phone companies are very difficult to describe, better to show. Its main objective is to draw the line between smartphones and smartwatches (i.e., smartwatch). Startup creating a product, make use of the various elements of the design of miniature devices, from Samsung to Frog Design. And yet, the device is more reminiscent of iPhone, tight to 3.3-inch display. The first iPhone, you remember, had a display of 3.5 inch but for 11 years, much has changed.
Most importantly, this device fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. And Palm means palm.
Something between a smartwatch and a smartphone
However, attractive appearance is not enough to convince a large number of people to shell out $ 349 for a product category that they see for the first time. This is due to a number of problems. For starters, in the U.S. it is the exclusive operator Verizon. This means that the further spread of new items will be problematic.
For the rest of the revived Palm is freedom from the 6-inch shovels. And with the growing popularity of smart watches, can only be marveled, which will lead the next trend of mobile devices. Personally, I’m happy I changed to your “plus” to something smaller. As they say the older people, “so called”.
Palm runs on Android 8.1 out of the box. Also the device is waterproof according to the IP68 standard and is equipped with a 800-mAh battery is a little, but don’t forget that the screen is too small, so charging will be enough for “all day”. The filling also includes 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB cumulative memory, and Snapdragon processor 435. For a smartphone it is very weak, but for the “ultramobile”. In the end, such a category still existed.
