Palm Pixi

Palm Pixi

Apart from the Pre, the smartphone maker is coming up with another model that brings the power of the Palm Pre to the people.  The Palm Pixi is the second from Palm Inc. to come up with a webOS device after the Pre, although the Pixi is generally viewed as a successor to the Palm Centro.

The Palm Pixi features a 2.6-inch touchscreen display with vibrant 18-bit color and 320 x 400 resolution.  It weighs close to 100 grams (or about 3.5 ounces) and supports GPS, dual-band CDMA2000, and 3G EVDO Rev A data networking.  It also has Microsoft-provided e-mail service and can support other services like Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL, and Hotmail.

This smartphone can send SMS, IM, and MMS with the help of its 2-megapixel camera with LED flash.  It also includes a proximity sensor, accelerometer, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, a MicroUSB connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, and 8GB flash memory.  Like the Palm Pre, the Pixi features Palm’s synchronization functions, as well as compatibility with the Palm Touchstone charging dock.  However, the Palm Pixi does not have Wi-Fi support unlike the Pre.

The Palm Pixi is expected to become available in the United States at the end of 2009, exclusive to Sprint.
