Announcing Palm Unlocked: Your Palm, Your Carrier, Your Way
We're excited to announce that you can now pre-order an unlocked Palm standalone smartphone through Palm.com. Starting today, customers who pre-order a standalone device will not only get free shipping, but will also get a free Palm Leather Case with neck and wrist lanyards.
What do we mean by “unlocked”? Essentially, we are now selling Palm standalone smartphone on Palm.com. This unlocked Palm will be available for customers in the United States only, and can be used with most major carriers including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and MetroPCS.*
“The vision for Palm was always to provide a game-changing, high-quality product at an affordable price that puts the customer back in charge of their digital lives,” said Howard Nuk, co-founder at Palm. “Compact but powerful, Palm allows customers to focus on what really matters in life outside our screens.”
The same Palm you know and love, this unlocked version of Palm is equipped with the latest software updates (including camera and battery improvements) and gives you access to the entire Google Play store where you can download any app you want. Palm is constantly making software updates and improvements which will automatically get rolled out to your Palm device.
“With so many cellular options available in the U.S., we wanted our customers to be able to choose how they use and how they connect their Palm,” said Dennis Miloseski, co-founder at Palm. “We received a huge response from digital minimalists looking to just carry their essentials, families wanting to connect kids with less distraction, and athletes desiring powerful connectivity on the go, so we made Palm available to them across more mobile networks in the U.S.”
Starting today, customers can place a pre-order for an unlocked version of Palm as a standalone smartphone device, retailing at $349.99. Each order will get free shipping and for a limited time, each pre-order purchase will also come with a free Leather Case with neck and wrist lanyards (a $30 value), which the Wall Street Journal claims is the newest fashion trend.
While this unlocked Palm is available as a standalone smartphone only (meaning it has it's own phone number), you are still able to purchase a Palm companion device (which shares the same phone number as your main phone using Verizon NumberShare) at Verizon and Best Buy stores. For customers outside of the United States, you can purchase Palm as a standalone smartphone in the following countries:
We are working hard to expand our availability across the globe, so stay tuned for more announcements throughout the year.
Palm customer David LaRoque had this to say about his Palm: “It’s so small – but so capable. When I first held it, it was way smaller and lighter than I even expected. I didn’t realize how the weight of the bigger slab phones made them so much more cumbersome. I continue to be impressed by how fast it is and how well it performs. Every app works great.” Hear more Palm stories from some of our current customers on why they love Palm and how they’re using it in their lives.
Whether you’re looking to purchase your child their first ever smartphone, an athlete looking for a small but powerful device, or even a digital minimalist who wants the same level of connectivity but that doesn’t keep them consumed by all the notifications and other distractions of our digital worlds, Palm is a great option for you. And at only $349.99, Palm allows you to truly connect on your terms.
