  • Palm Phone hands-on: an Android phone for your phone

So instead of getting distracted by a big screen, you can now get distracted by a smaller screen.

It's shortcomings are apparently its virtue.

Kicking things off at the very beginning, the idea of the Palm phone is that it gives people a smaller phone to use when they don't want to have to carry around their huge 6.5-inch behemoth, phones that have become all the rage since the original Palm went away. Unlike in a conventional Flight Mode, you can choose what gets through, and when.

Palm, the innovative brand behind the PDA, is reborn and it's coming out of the gate with a product that aims to create a whole new category of smart device. The Palm phone is about the size of a credit card, has a high pixel density LCD panel, and comes with IP68 rating. And it seems to run a fairly typical version of Android, so it can install apps from the Google Play store and let you talk to the Google Assistant.

This device must be linked to the existing Verizon Wireless account and then it can share all the phone numbers. For one, its octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset with 3GB of RAM is probably a fair bit slower than whatever's powering your main phone, so the sort of multitasking you might be used to could be a little hard here.

'Palm easily syncs to your phone with Verizon NumberShare, enabling you to receive all your texts, alerts, and phone calls. However, it is only available exclusively for Verizon customers since the phone will be sold as an add-on device to their existing plans. It just has a fancy name. "It's a much more aggressive way to turn off notifications and deny incoming phone calls". The device has an 800mAh battery that the company claims will last about 8 hours on a single charge. You get a single USB-C port and one virtual button. After waking the screen, the Palm Phone will regain connection. A G-Sensor, Glonass, GPS, Proximity sensor, E-compass, and Gyro take care of your fitness tracking needs. That means no notch, but it also means it's a hell of a lot less secure than Apple's dedicated face ID. Again, the phone would not even be worth mentioning if it weren't for that Palm branding.
