Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

The resurrected Palm brand had an idea for a very tiny smartphone-like device that was more like a smartwatch than it was a mobile phone. They created a device just called Palm, and they've made this device exclusive to Verizon. Verizon will sell this device to users who already have a phone or are looking to buy a phone and will pair it with said phone. This is basically a smaller version of your primary smartphone.

Palm made a beautiful, ridiculous mistake of a new phone

The brand Palm revealed a new "phone" today that looks nice and has very little reason to exist. Much in the same way the first wave of smartwatches' first job was to solve a problem that did not exist, this first Palm smartphone for the year 2018 is tiny, beautiful, and quite unnecessary. It has a 3.3-inch display and it's coming to Verizon this November!

Some OEMs are rushing to put out new phones in the coming days and weeks but TCL is just being chill and rolling out what it announced just over a month ago. After all, its BlackBerry-branded QWERTY phones don't exactly have universal appeal. It does have its fair share of fans, some of whom might have wished to get their hands on a BlackBerry KEY2 if they could afford it. Fortunately, there is the KEY2 LE which is now available for those in the US to pre-order.

Bring back the BlackBerry slider

Bring back the BlackBerry slider

The BlackBerry KEY2 is an brand new phone trying to coexist with an old-school form-factor, and struggling all the way. When it comes to capturing nostalgia, TCL - which has been licensing the BlackBerry brand for smartphones since 2016 - has done an excellent job. Problem is, there hasn't been quite as much success in making a must-have smartphone.

BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Growing keys, shrinking audience

If we're giving out awards for smartphone dedication in the face of modernity, the BlackBerry KEY2 should probably get a spot on the podium. TCL's 2018 flagship continues to obstinately buck the trend for full-touch, refining its physical keyboard and still promising a compelling trifecta of QWERTY, security, and reliability. At $649.99, though, are the KEY2's grudging acknowledgements of dual-camera technology enough to make this particular BlackBerry sufficiently juicy?

Just about every design, software, and hardware decision manufacturer TCL has made comes down to the physical keys in some way, whether it's the form-factor, the size of the touchscreen, or the new "Speed Key" that promises to make navigating Android 8.1 Oreo all the smoother. I've been using the KEY2 since last week, so read on for my first look first-impressions.

A new BlackBerry is always a cause for celebration since the smartphone-maker's reinvention with Android, and the BlackBerry KEY2 is no exception. Unveiled in New York today, the TCL-made smartphone delivers what we've come to expect from the BlackBerry brand of late: the combination of a touchscreen and a QWERTY keyboard in a minimalistically-handsome design, along with the latest version of Google's OS.
