    I visited a Verizon store and was mesmerized by a tiny Android smart phone no longer than the length of my index finger. It was so cool. The price tag at $350 was a bit much though. It's marketed as a companion phone to your regular phone which means the Palm phone shares the same phone number as your regular phone. But I disliked that Verizon charges an extra $10 monthly to your phone bill cuz this counts as an extra line.

    That's crazy extra 10.00 to your bill.

    If they made a wristband for this tiny smartphone, you could slap it on your wrist as a wearable smart watch! It's very, very, very small. I took a picture of it but I can't figure out how to attach the pic through my phone.

    This Palm Android smartphone is NOTHING like the Palm Pre and Palm Treo phones from 15 years ago that I used to own.

    It can be a standalone phone now.

    I thought the price dropped to $199??

    Hmm, interesting. For $199, I *might* get tempted to buy it as a standalone device, but not for $349 plus $10 extra monthly fee for an additional line per the Verizon sales rep.

    Attached is a picture of the phone I took at the Verizon store. The thing is barely the length of my index finger, plus thin too.

    I'm totally getting one.... Once the price drops right down. As a long distance runner who spends a lot of time out in the wilderness I HAVE to take my phone with me on longer runs just in case and I use a waist belt that takes a large phone no issue and for shorter runs I just rely on my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus for bluetooth music. A tiny smartphone like the Palm would easily fit in one of my small shorts pockets and barely be noticed.

    If or when this Palm phone goes out of business, I might buy one for the clearance price. When the Palm Treo and Palm Pre phones were discontinued over a decade ago, deals could be had everywhere.

    As Mr. Spock would say...Most illogical. He says that same phrase to me quite often, in fact!

    This phone is made by TCL after it bought the Palm brand. Has anyone here actually bought the phone?
