Tough Smartphone Verizon – Palm is a smartphone with a 3.3 inch screen, 720p, Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a $ 350 price tag. This is the first Palm brand smart phone to be announced since 2010, but this is not the same Palm that brought us PalmOS and webOS.
The new Palm smartphone runs Google Android 8.1 software with a special user interface and comes from a California-based startup that now has rights on behalf of Palm. First launched earlier this month, Verizon has announced you will be able to buy a new cellphone starting November 2.

As expected, the new phone is Verizon exclusive, and it will sell for $ 350 if you buy it directly. You can also save $ 50 and get $ 300 if you sign up for a 2-year plan with Verizon or you can pay full price but spread your payment in 24 installments of $ 14.58 each.
The phone will be available in two colors: “Titanium” or “Gold” and Verizon also introduces a line of accessories including casing, arms, and wrist strap – something that makes sense when you talk about this small cellphone, I think.
Palm only measures 3.8 “x 2”, making the phone the size of a credit card.
One thing that is difficult to accommodate on a small cellphone? Big battery. So it’s not surprising that Palm doesn’t have it: the cellphone has an 800 mAh battery and the company that makes it only promises up to 8 hours of battery life.
This is a smart phone designed for people who really don’t want to use a smartphone.
Other features include a 12MP rear camera and a front facing 8MP camera and it is an IP68 rating for protection against dust and water. This phone supports 4G LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11b / g / n WiFi.
