Smartphone screens are only getting bigger, which is great for catching up on Game of Thrones but not necessary when it comes to answering email and queuing up a pre-run playlist. That’s where Palm comes in. The device started as a companion to your smartphone, but it’s finally available as a primary smartphone option that comes with its own phone number and data plan.
Measuring 3.8 by 2 inches — that’s roughly the size of a credit card — Palm is perfect for active lifestyles. It’s water and dust-resistant, while new software updates have extended the battery life to three-plus days for standby time. An improved rear camera offers 12-megapixels and includes improved HDR, color balance and low light performance. With all the Android apps you’re used to, Palm has made it easy to size down your smartphone — especially since it’s on sale for $199 until May 1.
