The first Palm-branded smartphone seems absolutely preposterous and laughable It’s got a itty bitty 3.3-inch display, a weak 800mAh battery, but uses a Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and runs Android. Who is this for, and carpenter ant from 2011?
According to reports, shots of a new Palm smartphone have been leaked code-named “Pepito.” You may remember the last Palm phone we got was way back in 2011 when the Pre 3 launched. To say this new Palm phone is a little strange considering it’s 2018 is an understatement.
Considering the specifications and the size of this handset, it’s obvious it’s a budget handset for people with a serious case of nostalgia for a brand like Palm. It will run Android, meaning it has access to Google Play and any apps that can function on such a small screen. It is going to launch in the US, and allegedly Verizon has decided to offer it for sale.
There’s no details on price or launch date, but expect Verizon to say something soon. This is for kids, women without giant purses, nostalgia nerds, or those on a serious budget.
