Palm Pixi Announced
It's official: Palm has announced their second webOS device: the "strikingly thin" Palm Pixi. Another Sprint exclusive, the Pixi will feature - in addition to the usual webOS Synergy software goodness - EVDO Rev. A, a 2.63-inch 320x400 TFT multi-touch screen, an exposed QWERTY keyboard, GPS, 2-megapixel camera with flash, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB of internal storage (contrary to earlier rumors), and a Qualcomm MSM7627 chipset.
But that's not all: Pixi will also offer "fashionable personalization options". Rather than simply offer the phone in a variety of colors, as with it's predecessor, the Centro, the Pixi will have available numbered, limited-edition back covers, the first collection of which can be viewed here. The press release also states that Pixi will debut with a brand-new native Facebook application.
Palm's press release states the Pixi will be available "in time for the holidays", with pricing yet to be announced.
"With Palm webOS, we're creating a new, more intuitive smartphone experience defined by unmatched simplicity and usefulness," said Jon Rubinstein, Palm chairman and chief executive officer. "Palm Pixi brings this unique experience to a broader range of people who want enhanced messaging and social networking in a design that lets them express their personal style."
"Palm Pixi continues Sprint's leadership in providing useful and innovative devices on America's most dependable 3G network," said Dan Hesse, chief executive officer at Sprint. "We are pleased to be the first carrier to bring this device to market and offer both devices in the growing Palm webOS family. Sprint's Everything Data plans, which provide unrestricted access to the Internet, mobile content and applications, and our Ready Now retail experience make for a perfect combination with these new Palm products."
