Palm Now Makes a Tiny Companion Phone

Palm is back (sort of), and it built a tiny smartphone sidekick

Oh - and National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry has been brought in to promote the new Palm.

The phone goes on sale in November for $US350.

"The Palm Phone runs on a custom version of Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and sports a 3.3" HD (1280 x 720 pixels) LCD display with a 445ppi pixel density and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The point of the device is...uh, unclear.

U.S. 'punished' if Saudi arms sale halted over Khashoggi
Prince Mohammed told Reuters previous year that Blackstone and BlackRock Inc were planning to open offices in the kingdom. Saudi officials have been in and out of the building since Khashoggi's disappearance October 2 without being stopped.

The Palm phone's "Life Mode", for example, will free you from constant distractions. The idea, it seems, is that you carry around your smaller Palm phone, and leave your regular phone at home, thus combating your app addiction. For now at least, the Palm is a Verizon-exclusive, and use's the carrier NumberShare service to sync your messages and notifications between your main phone and this thing.

The Palm Phone will be available Titanium and Gold colors. He told Variety that The Palm is all about on-the-go activities like listening to music, working out, or just enjoying your weekend.

Also, the Palm, the smallest Android smartphone of the moment, is also boasting a Life Mode that "enables a set of Do Not Disturb and Low Battery settings". An 800mAh battery backs the device and is touted by the company to last for more than 3 days on standby and offer an "all-day battery life" on a single charge. The Palm Phone will launch next month. It doesn't come with a fingerprint scanner, but it does come with Face Unlock that lets you unlock the phone using your face. And its specs are from a different era, as well. The phone features a SnapDragon 435, 32 GB storage, and 3 GB RAM.

Does an AVENGERS 4 Toy Reveal Details About the Plot?
She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the United States and joining the Avengers . Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger " in 2011.

Palm is now back, thanks to San Francisco designers Howard Nuk and Dennis Miloseski, who teamed up with TCL and Verizon Wireless for the Palm revival.

Well, most of you might have heard about Palm which was shut down in 2011. It has a gesture pad at the bottom of the screen that can be accessed by swiping up. Whether that's a bad thing is totally up to you since a lot of people like Verizon's apps.

The 12-megapixel rear camera probably won't be producing photos that impress, but may get the job done anyways. You'll need to disable iMessage whenever switching to The Palm. The other features available on the Palm Phone include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Global Positioning System.

Google brings camera twists, bigger screens to Pixel phones
You can watch subscription Prime Video and "video Flash Briefings from Sky News Australia, Fox Sports and more". It's not the first of its kind, as Lenovo already has the Smart Display , which has an identical feature set.
