Whatever particular complaints you have about the Palm phone, there's one that people can generally agree on: it's that you have to use it as a secondary handset. Thankfully, you won't have to buy a larger device if you don't want to. Palm's pint-sized phone is now available as a stand-alone product through Verizon (Engadget's parent company) for $199 after a $150 discount that ends May 1st. It'll have its own number and data plan, just like its many bigger counterparts. The company pitches it as an option for athletes who want an unintrusive communicator, a first phone for kids or just an everyday carry for minimalists.
