New Release: Cheaper Palm Pre sibling called Pixi Smartphone
Palm has announced a new cheaper and lighter mobile phone known as the Palm Pixi which should become available sometime during the holiday season via Sprint reports the Associated Press.
Palm hasn’t announced the pricing of the new Palm Pixi but has said it will cost less than the Palm Pre smartphone, whether that price will be lower than the original Palm Pre $199.99 or the revised $149.99 price we don’t know yet.
The Palm Pixi handset will be the second attempt within a year by Palm to use new software to lure customers in the mobile market which is currently dominated by the iconic iPhone, and BlackBerry devices. The Palm Pixi will sport webOS, a full QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera, and 8GB of built in memory in a candy-bar form factor.
