The Palma has a six-inch screen

The Palma has a six-inch screen and 300 DPI like the rest, though it looks and feels (and is) smaller due to its phone-like aspect ratio. It runs a modified version of Android with minimal apps installed but has the ability to download more in a less roundabout way. The reading app, however, is the same, and it supports just as many formats, fonts and customizations.


You’ll need them, because it can be tough to find the right settings on this narrow screen! Now, for some, this might not be as much of a stretch, because they are used to reading books on their phones already. For those folks, this could be a breakthrough. The dimmable, color-adjustable front-lit screen is every bit as good as the best readers on the market, just a different shape. The “volume” button on the right side can even be set to page turns, which makes one-handed reading very easy.


There’s also 128 GB of storage built in and a microSD slot, so if you wanted to load up audiobooks or even a couple hundred albums, you’re more than welcome (though the default music app is very minimal). The mono speaker isn’t great and there’s no headphone jack, so stick to Bluetooth.
