Chinese manufacturer TCL is reviving Palm

07 January, 2015
The TCL Corporation purchased the Palm brand and wants to restore the legend

Sort by:

The Palm Treo yes, anything else no way! Palm wasn't big in the UK from what I gather. If you had a Smartphone back then it was either Nokia,Blackberry or the P series from Sony Ericsson.

Will the Facebook feature phone be called the "Face Palm"?

A Palm phone with Android OS would be just any other Android phone. Also Palm no name recognition among the newbies. Nothing to expect after all, the Chinese TCL is well, Chinese.

good news, but I don't regard Alcatel since I don't find any feature seem to be worthy to be purchase - normal = design,spec,no special feature and even its price point is also not tempting(higher profit margin - unlike Xiaomi). But we shall see what form would the revive Palm would be when this project takes it shape.

PALM - True inventor of a Phablet territory!!!! Not Shamesung like some blind people might think!

This is very good news indeed. The Palm brand was truly great, providing us with great products, and as you said, well ahead of their time. The demise of Palm left a big gap, so now that TLC is about to revive this famous brand, nothing could make me happier. If TLC does its homework well, by producing Palm as a good and solid product with a good range of prices to suit all pockets, then success will be theirs. Renewing Iconic products like the VW Beetle, the Mini, the Fiat 500 hit success because they were revived by keeping their spirits alive.

They might be onto something if they can create a smartphone with the best features that palm offered.

  • Sarosh

This is the best news I've heard for a long time !
I've used Palm Pilot-II onwards till the Palm-2 phone (which I still use as a music player !).
Wow, will be good to get to use a Palm again.
TCL is a highly innovative company, I've used their products also.

My Palm Treo680 was wonderful. The synchronization was ways complete even via Bluetooth, and it had a far better sync and backup than I currently have with Galaxy Note 4.

I welcome the Palm brand.

"Palm was a household name back in its glory days and fueled the US mobile scene, putting out spectacular products like the Pre and Pixi series, which were arguably ahead of their time."

What? Palm's prominence was during the Treo line.

OMG this is almost week old info. I was mentioning it few times in comments.
