Sprint has confirmed that the Palm Pixie will be available from the 15th of November, for $99.99 with a contract, after mail in rebates, which seems a little expensive to us considering the Palm Pre is $150.
The Palm Pixie is Palm’s second mobile phone to run Palm’s new webOS, and it is a candy bar style phone with a built in keyboard on the front, and it shares a lot of features with the Palm Pre.
“We are excited to offer the new Palm Pixi to our customers in time for the holiday season, and it’s a great addition to Sprint’s industry-leading device portfolio,” said Kevin Packingham, senior vice president – Product Development, Sprint. “Simply put, this phone is fun and easy to use; with its multi-touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard, it’s a great device for messaging and social networking at a price everyone can enjoy, and delivers so many of the great features people love about Palm Pre™ in a fantastic new form factor, making it a huge hit for consumers.”
It also features a 2.63 inch display with a resolution of 320 x 400, other features of the Palm Pixie include a 2 megapixel camera, as opposed to the 3 megapixel camera in the Pre, plus an accelerometer and GPS.
