Palm Pixi review

 

It's hard to believe that Palm is already pushing its second webOS device, the Pixi, out the door. It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were eagerly

Great industrial design ; Responsive keyboard for its size ; webOS scales to the smaller screen

Slower CPU makes for sluggish behavior ; No WiFi ; Pre is a better phone at a similar price

Palm Pixi

 

Palm's latest WebOS device, the sprightly Pixi ($100 with a two-year Sprint contract; price as of 11/10/09), is a slimmed-down version of the Palm Pre in both specs and design. The Pixi lacks Wi-Fi, it has a smaller screen with a lower resolution, and...

Cute, pocketable design ; Great features in WebOS

Can be slow to open/close apps ; No Wi-Fi

The newest addition to the WebOS family has an attractive, superslim design, but its performance can be slow and the keyboard needs improvement.

Palm Pixi (Sprint)

 

The Palm Pixi is a cute, little smartphone aimed at the texting-phone crowd.

Fun interface. Cute design. Usable keyboard. Many more features than texting phones have.

Struggles with multitasking and video playback. Thin app catalog. Only for people with sharp eyes and small fingers.

Conclusions Obviously, the Pixi is cramped and underpowered compared to Sprint smartphones like the Pre (with its larger screen) and the HTC Hero (with 12,000 apps to the Pixi's 359.) The real competition here is against phones like the free Sanyo...

Palm Pixi (Sprint) review

 

The debut of the Palm Pre got the tech world and gadget enthusiasts excited about Palm once again. Long considered dead in the water, Palm's innovative WebOS operating system buoyed it back into the spotlight, and the Pre was certainly a boon for the...

The Palm Pixi features a remarkably thin design and an improved QWERTY keyboard. An updated OS brings Yahoo integration as well as enhanced messaging features. It also offers Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support.

Lacks Wi-Fi. The smartphone can be sluggish and battery can drain quickly. The camera's picture quality is subpar and still lacks video recording and editing options.

While not as powerful as the Pre, the Palm Pixi offers first-time smartphone buyers a decent set of features in a sleek little package. However, to be really competitive, we think it needs to come down in price just a touch.

Palm Pixi (Sprint) Review

 

In some ways we wish the Palm Pre were more like the Pixi. The latter slimmer and lighter, and the keyboard is always at the ready (no need to slide). However, at times the Pixi's slower processor has trouble keeping up with the multitasking-friendly...

Remarkably slim and light design, Responsive multitouch display, Polished interface, Better keyboard than Pre, Good Web browser

Performance a bit sluggish, Smaller, dimmer screen than Pre, Lacks Wi-Fi, No video recording

Palm Pixi Review

 

On the surface, the Pixi is a very attractive phone. It has a great, intuitive, user interface. However, to overcome the performance issues, users have to use the Pixi as a very basic smartphone: try to do as little as possible with it, and it might...

Palm Pixi

 

The Palm Pixi sports many of the features found on its predecessor the Palm Pre including Palm's latest webOS, 8GB internal hard drive, and access to many of Sprint's premium services. The Palm Pixi also has an updated version of the webOS and a...

Palm Pixi Review

 

The Palm Pre was arguably the most anticipated device of the year, and for the most part it hit the mark. So how do you follow up the device that is supposed to turn your company around? Meet the Palm Pixi. This little sprite takes almost everything we...

Palm Pixi Review - AT&T Smartphone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

The Palm Pixi has been around the proverbial carrier block a few times and now Palm has both their webOS smartphones, the Pre and Pixi, on all but American’s 4th largest carrier. AT&T is the latest to join the party, and like Verizon they offer...

Great OS, excellent web browser, extremely affordable smartphone

Tiny keyboard

If you're looking to move up from a texting feature phone, the Palm Pixi Plus is an excellent choice. It's fun and easy to use, yet it's powerful with a full featured Webkit browser that supports pinch zooming (Flash is coming but isn't here yet),...
