And there’s no word if it’s still going to be a pocket computer, or updated to a phone, or what… so we’ll have to just wait and see how a new Palm device stands out in a world of pretty awesome smartphones. And I’m not updating my Samsung Galaxy S7 until I find out…

“Now after 15 years of effort, Demeter has captured the olfactory essence of the warmth and comfort of that purrfect spot, just behind kitten’s neck.” Who wants to smell like kitten?
