A month ago we saw images of an upcoming phone seemingly made by Palm, and now it has leaked again, with a new render giving us a close look at the front, back and one side.

What’s unusual about this phone – other than the fact that we haven’t seen a Palm-branded smartphone in a long, long time – is that it looks to be absolutely tiny.

The latest image, which was shared by Android Headlines, doesn’t give you a full sense of that, but according to a previous leak the display is just 3.3 inches.

However, what is clear in this new image is that the phone – which might be codenamed the Palm Pepito – has big bezels, so while it’s likely to be very small it could still be bigger than you’d expect from the rumored screen size.

Few features and fewer buttons

Other details in the image include a single-lens camera on both the front and back and a power button and SIM card slot on the right edge of the phone.

Earlier this week, Amazon unveiled Amazon One: new technology for its Amazon Go stores that lets shoppers pay for their groceries by scanning the palm of their hand. By analyzing the shape of your hand and the unique configuration of veins under your skin, Amazon says its technology can verify your identity the same way facial recognition does.

Although Amazon One will initially be used for payments only, it’s clear the tech giant has much bigger ambitions for this hardware. In the future, it says, Amazon One could not only be used for shopping but as a replacement for tickets at music and sporting events, and as an alternative to your office keycard, letting you scan in with a swipe of your hand. In other words, Amazon One isn’t a...

Indeed, upcoming products from nearly all handset manufacturers are routinely subjected to an endless stream of conjecture and speculation.

What s especially interesting is that iPhone rumors were all the rage even years before Steve Jobs unveiled the device to the world back in 2007.

DON T MISS: Brand new images show us how hot the iPhone 7 will actually be

On August 19, 2002, John Markoff of The New York Times penned an article wherein he said that Apple was already contemplating the development of a phone.

And now come signs that Mr. Jobs means to take Apple back to the land of the handhelds, but this time with a device that would combine elements of a cellphone and a Palm -like personal digital assistant.

Certainly, Apple s push into the market for a hand-held communicator would be an abrupt departure for Mr. Jobs, who continues publicly to disavow talk of such a move.

As a prime example, look no further than the iPhone 5s, a device that brought fingerprint recognition technology and 64-bit mobile processors to the mainstream.

Join us for a brief retrospective on the last decade of Android devices: the good, the bad, and the Nexus Q.

This is the one that started it all, and I have a soft spot in my heart for the old thing.

Compared to the iPhone, it was like a poorly dressed whale.

(Disclosure: Verizon owns Oath, which owns TechCrunch, but this doesn’t affect our coverage in any way.)

This was the fruit of the continued collaboration between Google and HTC, and the first phone Google branded and sold itself.

Palm was a smartphone pioneer and a leading personal digital assistant provider, but HP s acquisition sealed its fate

Back in 1992, a company called Palm Inc was founded, and it was widely regarded as a pioneer of the mobile revolution that took root in that decade.

Palm specialised in the personal digital assistant PDA thanks to its successful Palm Pilot devices, but it also developed one of the first smartphones with the Treo 600.

The early days of Palm saw it earning its crust by selling synchronisation software for HP devices, and the Graffiti handwriting recognition software for the Apple Newton MessagePad.

For the day, the Palm Pilot was actually a fairly decent piece of kit.

It offered a 160 160 pixel monochrome LCD, and featured a Graffiti input zone in the bottom third of the screen.

This 3.3-inch device has a spec sheet closer to a smartwatch than a smartphone, and it looks more like a prop from a comedy skit rather than a serious connectivity product.

There have been phones with 3.3-inch displays in the past, but they haven't really been combined with the more compact design trends of today.

After bombing out in the smartphone market circa 2010 and selling to HP, Chinese firm TCL bought the rights to Palm back in 2014 and announced plans to resurrect the company in 2015.

The corpse of Palm remained still for several years, but the right combination of a full moon, or lightning strike, or something roused the company back to life just last month.

Easter is a time for resurrections and so El Reg noted with interest that Palm, after an eight-year hiatus, has signed up Verizon as the first telco to stock the device when it launches this year.

Word of the development was first broken by Android Police.

Palm owner TCL, which also has a licence to use the Alcatel and BlackBerry brands, acquired the Palm tag from HP in January 2015, but has done nothing with it so far that is visible to the public.

The original Palm Pilot, launched in 1996, was a smash hit, arising from the ashes of the "pen computing" hype of the early 1990s.

Palm launched its first true smartphone, the Treo 600, in 2003, and was still squeezing some life from the venerable PalmOS a year after the Apple iPhone debuted.

Palm's final tilt at the market was spectacular but unsuccessful.

Palm’s tiny smartphone was poorly received when it landed in 2018, but now the company is having a second stab at generating some interest in the diminutive device.

Through Verizon, Palm is now offering it as a standalone phone for an April-only price of just $199, representing a hefty saving of $150.

The 3.3-inch Palm handset launched last year to more of a raspberry than a fanfare.

Digital Trends, for example, was only able to muster half a star out of five in a review that criticized it for its poor hardware, confused raison d’être, and high price, though Thursday’s update is a clear effort to address some of these issues.

Part of the problem was that before now, the Palm could only operate as a companion phone (an option still available through Verizon).

Yes, that meant you needed another handset to use it, leaving you with two phones to manage instead of one.

When I first showed it to some coworkers, they were actually pretty psyched.

If nothing else, the 3.3-inch in device was an interesting one.

The design was nice, too — if only because it was a pretty straightforward iPhone knockoff.

But enthusiasm died quickly as the reality of the product set in.

Among the many complaints was the fact that Palm and Verizon were positioning it exclusively as a secondary device.

Users had to tie it to an existing account, which meant two phones with two monthly fees, both tied to the same carrier.

Palm is best known as a pioneer in the worlds of personal digital assistants and smartphones.

The $349 device, sold exclusively in the US by Verizon Wireless, will pair up with your existing phone but has its own cellular radio that requires an additional $10 charge on your monthly wireless bill.

These additions emerged following a rise in consumer concern that everyone, and children in particular, is spending too much time on a phone.

"We think technology should recede," Palm co-founder Dennis Miloseski said in an interview last week.

Co-founder Howard Nuk compares the new direction of Palm to the reinvention of the Mini Cooper brand by BMW, noting that a new generation of fans learned to appreciate the compact vehicle.

But whether the new Palm is a clunker or sleeper depends on how many people buy into this bizarre concept.

The Palm phone launched last year as a companion device, something that shares a phone number with your smartphone and costs an extra $10 a month.

The 3.3-inch Android handset was marketed as an alternative to your main phone that you could grab on the weekends.

Now, Verizon is also selling it as a standalone device.

It’s currently on sale through April for just $199, which is a hearty discount from the original $350 price tag.

If you read and watched our review of the Palm phone, you’ll know that we have mixed feelings about this thing.
