Wow, it has youtube?

Wow, WhatsApp has built an app to work on KaiOS! Although you could just run it off a web page ( web.whatsapp.com/ )

Being a light OS, this could work well within the Freedompop 200mb free data.

In the first two minutes of the video, the phone in the Matrix is alluded to, and a few differences are mentioned.

Seriously--here's a fun read review of Verizon's Pepito or Palm phone, which is a definite two palms down. And it appears that it won't be long before this phone will be palmed off for a much lower price, and I suspect Verizon might start giving them away as a promo item. Humorous that they have a sim card slot that doesn't open.

Too bad is doesn't have NFC-- that's a deal-killer. ;)

Yeah, a phone the size of a credit card, and one can't even make a payment with it. The author of the article was pretty hard on the little Pepito, and he kept comparing it to a full sized smartphone, which it does not pretend to be. Some of the people in the comments section had a more favorable attitude toward the Pepito.

There seems to be a race on to the smallest this or that phone, but these two 4G little phones have more going for them than the Pepito, especially their prices when compared to the $350 for the Pepito.

The sad thing is that the palm phone was made into such an expensive vanity item. It could have been so much more. Not sure what they were thinking. I have fond memories of palm and would love to see a proper come back.

Looks like they updated it and it is now a standalone phone.
