It weights a super slim 2.2 ounces and will come in black with titanium or gold metal surrounds. Its running a version of Android 8.1 powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 with an X9 LTE modem with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

There doesn't seem to be an official name for the device of yet as its simply being referred to as "Palm" in press reviews and on the new The San Francisco based startup company running this latest incarnation of the Palm apparently licensed the Palm brand name from TCL. Other than the brand name, there is very little to no connection to the Palm Inc. that produced PDAs and the Tree smartphones.

*LTE Service, but requires a phone. Cannot get service separately.

*Small Screen

*Typing possible, but really should use voice.

It is known as the Apple Watch.

Priced at $350. Not really a phone but a companion to your phone? Not seeing where the market is for this.

Can't believe it's been 20 years since Palm was hot. Imagine if Palm OS was as popular as Android. What a beautiful world it would be.
