If you like watching videos, playing games and reading the news on your huge phone display, you have Samsung's Galaxy Note to thank. You may take all your screen space for granted now, but not so long ago, small phones -- not big ones -- were all the rage. In 2011, when the original Galaxy Note launched, the Samsung Galaxy S's 4-inch screen was about as big as anyone wanted. It took Samsung's marketing clout to convince us all to give large-screen phones a try. On Wednesday, Samsung is rumored to launch the Galaxy Note 10 with a 6.6-inch screen, and an even larger Note 10 Plus with a 6.8-inch display. (P.S. here's how the Note 10 can impress us.) These would be supersized devices for sure, but chances are your jaw didn't just drop reading those numbers. After all, the Galaxy S10 Plus already has a vast 6.4-inch display. The new Notes would just be a little bigger. This inching toward ever-larger screen sizes matters because of the way the screens themselves matter in the … [Read more...] about If you like your big phone, thank the Galaxy Note

Imagine a mini iPhone so tiny it fits neatly into the palm of your hand and into your tightest jeans pocket. But it isn't an iPhone. It isn't even a phone at all. This 3.3-inch gadget is the new Palm, a superportable Android sidekick that has its own LTE data connection and pairs with your phone for calls and texts.Repeat it again: The new Palm isn't a phone, but it works with the phone you already have. When you want to watch videos, play games or take fancy portrait shots, reach for your main device. But when you want to go for a jog, run a quick errand or focus on the people around you, Palm wants you to take its gadget instead. For Palm (yes, Palm is the name of the product and the company), the device is a lifeline when you need it, not an object to obsess over like you would your usual phone.I briefly tried out the Palm, and it's nuts.For anyone who's ever moaned about the death of small phones, the Palm is truly a one-handed device that does most of what you want to do on your … [Read more...] about Palm is a 3.3-inch Android sidekick that won’t replace your phone
The Future Is FlexibleGone are the days when the only way you could afford a cell phone was to buy into a lengthy cell phone plan. In those early days, a cell phone plan included a seemingly ironclad contract that lasted a minimum of three years. There simply were no choices. If you wanted a cell phone you had to buy the phone and commit to being tied to a contract; like it or lump it.Thankfully those days are over and today because of the number of service providers, choices abound! Today's cell phone plans are designed with the consumer and their multitude of choices in mind. The wireless customer can choose an affordable cell phone with many choices and combinations of cell phone plans. That's the good news! There is bad news though, with the large volume of information available today, where does a person start to look and how do they decide what to choose?Choices, Choices, ChoicesThat's the reason for this article. My goal is to help guide you through the myriad of choices that … [Read more...] about Cell Phone Plans – Choices Abound!
Heidi Klum was only half correct on Project Runway. It's true that one day you're in and the next day, you're out. But a few years after that? You could be in again. That pendulum swing applies not just in fashion -- though I refuse to believe that pleated pants deserve a comeback -- but also in technology. Consider the rumor that ground through the mill yesterday that Palm (yes, that Palm) will strike a much-needed blow against the scourge of Hindenburg-size phones with a 3.3-inch Android phone possibly coming to Verizon.With a display almost half the size of Samsung's new and massive Galaxy Note 9, the Palm Pepito (its rumored name) would take us to a simpler time when phones could squarely fit in your hand and even get lost in your bag. Forget big is the new small. No… small is the new big.Whoa, if trueGranted, one small phone, and an unofficial one at that, does not mark a new trend. But at some point, a backlash to big was bound to happen. Phones the size of a football field … [Read more...] about Why a tiny Palm phone comeback makes sense in a Note 9 world
