Palm Pixi

    Palm Pixi

    Palm Pixi The Pixi is targeted at younger users with more social networking features. Having said that, it’s curious why Palm left out Wi-Fi with this new device. It seems to me that Wi-Fi is a natural fit for youngsters, maybe even more needed for this group than for the business user. After all, teens and 20-somethings are Wi-Fi junkies.
    Still though, the Pixi presents a extremely cool form factor, redefining portability in what I think will be a very powerful smartphone. The Pre is a state-of-the-art capable phone, doing several things that other smartphones can’t do. The Pixi is essentially the same phone, much like it’s predecessors, the Treo and Centro. Both of those phones were nearly identical, but were marketed as a busines-user phone and a teen-phone respectively. The Pre/Pixi line-up seems to be marketed the same way. But don’t be fooled. The Pixi has a lot of horsepower behind a wafer-thin device. I’m excited to see this new phone, and if you’re in a Sprint market with high-speed data, you won’t miss Wi-Fi.
