$349 and you get a 10% of a smartphone,no thanks i can grab a very powerful smartphone at that price ,this is just a cheap quick cash grab,this product should cost about $49
Just give us a modern webOS, and I'll be happy. Oh wait, Apple and Google already copied it.
Don't forget Apple copied threaded text messages from the Palm Treo. Many younger folks don't know text messages was sent one at a time. It wasn't threaded yet. Palm started it. The first iPhone copied it.
Going back on topic, this is a pocket Wi-Fi device. The companion device should be a smartwatch since you can wear it all the time. Especially an Apple Watch with LTE. The smartphone could get forgotten at home and you can still call and sent messages with your Apple Watch. That's the perfect complimentary device to an iPhone.
Here is another thought. TCL, make a BlackBerry 10 device that is up to date and current! It can be a sidekick BlackBerry 10 device!
BlackBerry needs to not kill BBX
IÂ’ll be real. iPhone 8 is much main phone for day to day use.
BlackBerry (Z30, Classic, Passport, And Bold 9900) I use for my Emails but also are ready for back up. My iPod Touch, iPhone 5s and 3GS for my music.
IÂ’m crazy enough to consider the palm... but it doesnÂ’t have a headset jack so no dice.
I have a Galaxy S7 and a Alcatel Idol 4S Windows Phone benched as a back up but rarely do I have to use them for anything.
Can't think of a use case where this thing would be a viable options. Nothing. It's one of the most useless gadgets ever released, imo.
They should have launched this device as a standalone smartphone instead, without any change in current specifications. Would have been much better then.
"a gesture control system in software (which is Android 8.1 Oreo), and no NFC or a headphone jack."
No NFC is not an issue. Why FORCED gesture control system in Palm's software, are they trying to be Google?? Why is 3.5mm jack not there as STANDARD, seems Palm has "officially" joined (Cr)Apple's "COURAGE" cult after Panasonic, Sharp, OnePlus, Axon...
We Android Truthers / Users are afraid that for such a low end phone with NO 3.5mm JACK, other manufacturers might consider removing it from their low end models.
Palm must be like,
Hey, we know you like smartphones, so we made a smartphone for your smartphone.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2018The CEO hired a bunch of people that used to make donuts lolThat explains a lot...
this is basically like stupid overpriced Light Phone, except Light Phone still can Phone & text, but have less feature, and only monochrome screen like old Nokia Phone -_-
I have my ipod connected via wifi hotspot on my android the best of 2 worlds ios and android unbeatable
So, basically it is an oversized smartwatch to pair with a phone to make call, except you dont attach it to your wrist. Welp, that a whole waste of money to even consider buying. Palm d.o.a.
Battery's too small and no 3.5mm jack hampers its usefulness as a media player...
Hey Palm.. i have a better suggestion. Make a laptop dock for smart phones. Currently there are limited such products, and kickstarters gain 200% from their funding sooo you will know many people wants such things.
Making this only bring more bad debt to you! NO ONE Wants it!.. They will just buy a smaller phone.
Buy a $20 prepaid and download software or remote screen software to operate your main phone from it.
I was hoping somebody was making a serious competitor to android and iOS which respected privacy and had full on camera function and storage access.
