The teeny Palm phone is a Vodafone exclusive in the UK

Now to get your head around why it actually exists

What’s the best way to tear yourself away from your smartphone? Buy a much smaller auxiliary smartphone, of course! This really is the thinking behind the recently relaunched Palm’s new device. The credit card-sized Palm phone pairs with your main burner (Android or iOS), runs Android 8.1 and even has a couple of cameras. But while it’s a fully-functional smartphone on paper, the idea is that you won’t be as glued to it. It’s a lightweight alternative for when the odd text or email is all that’s necessary, and spending 15 minutes scrolling through your Twitter feed on a 3.3in display isn’t quite so tempting. No word on price or availability yet, but we do know that Vodafone will have six months exclusivity before other providers can get involved.

I'm fascinated by all things tech, but if you were going to leave me on a desert island, I'd probably ask for my Nintendo Switch, a drone, and a pair of noise-cancelling cans to block out the relentless seagull racket. When I'm not on Stuff duty you'll probably find me subscribing to too many podcasts, playing too many video games, or telling anyone who will listen that Spurs are going to win a trophy this season.
