Palm opens pre-orders for its standalone smartphone, offers free leather case
After launching the Palm Phone as a companion to your smartphone back in November, the US company decided that it would have been better to offer it as a standalone phone. In early April, Verizon started to sell the Palm Phone as a standalone smartphone, so you wouldn't need a second phone.

Today, the Verizon's exclusivity over the Palm Phone is over, as the smartphone is now available for pre-order through Also, customers who pre-order the standalone phone will not only get free shipping, but also a free Palm Leather Case with neck and wrist lanyards.

It's important to note that the Palm Phone now comes unlocked, which means it can be used with any US carrier, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and MetroPCS.

As far as the price goes, customers can place a pre-order for an unlocked Palm Phone for $350. Apart from being able to pre-order the standalone device in the US, Palm announced that customers can purchase the smartphone in the following countries: Germany (Vodafone), Hong Kong (3), Japan, Spain (Vodafone and Movistar), and the UK (Vodafone).
