We're in love with Palm's (yes, that Palm) new tiny phone
After years away from the market, the once-popular smartphone maker Palm is back with a sleek and tiny phone—backed by the NBA megastar Steph Curry.
Designed as a companion for your regular smartphone, this AED1,285 Palm syncs with your phone number so you can leave your big phone at home and still get calls, texts, and even your e-mails and apps. Basically, everything you need to get through the day.
Available with a gold or a titanium frame, the gadget looks like a bona fide fashion accessory. One of the best parts? It’s fully waterproof, which makes this companion device a must-have for beach trips.
Our favorite bit about the phone is its ability to enter Life Mode, a setting that might make the millennials reading scream "yass". It aims to help people get off the grid for a bit. In Life Mode, the Palm blocks all notifications, allowing you to focus on things and events you care about without being distracted by your device’s notifications.
The phone is only available in the US for now - and even then, it's locked to Verizon's phone network - but we reckon they'll be on the region's bustling grey market before christmas.
