Palm's tiny companion phone is now available as a standalone device

Palm's tiny companion phone is now available as a standalone device

TCL is the company which also licenses out the Alcatel and BlackBerry branding, but they later sold the Palm brand to a startup in San Francisco. The phone's small size means it'll be more easily misplaced than, say, the massive 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max, though judging by some of the Palm's initial reviews, not knowing where it is may be no bad thing.

The 3.3-inch Palm handset launched a year ago to more of a raspberry than a fanfare.

Palm has decided to make its diminutive Palm Phone available as a standalone product through Verizon for just $199, Tech Times is reporting. Palm has now announced a new version that's capable of serving as a standalone Android phone. That's a steep price to pay for what was effectively a large smartwatch.

Do you remember the tiny 3.3 inch phone that Palm launched in 2018?

Part of the problem was that before now, the Palm could only operate as a companion phone (an option still available through Verizon). Software updates should extend the battery life as well as improve the camera's color accuracy and low-light shooting. When the Palm phone was initially released using the phone, which shares a number with your main device, would only add $10 to your monthly bill - apart from the purchase price. Verizon has trade-in options for those looking to get a standalone device instead of a companion. The standalone version is on sale for the month of April for $199.
