Palm Pixi review

 

The follow-up to the Palm Pre is lighter, easier to use and just as web-enabled

Small, light, and thin ; Works with Yahoo etc ; Combines message streams ; Touch screen works as stated ; Superior call quality

USB cover is hard to use initially ; No Wi-Fi ; Runs slow at times ; No expandable memory ; Still limited in app selection

Palm Pixi - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

Expect Mrs Pocket-lint to be putting one on her Christmas list when the phone launches later in the year

Small, light, nimble

No Wi-Fi, small keyboard

The most intriguing element of the Palm Pixi is that rather than try and expand the Palm love on other carriers, Palm has opted to keep the Pixi on the Sprint network for the time being. This means would be unlockers won't be able to sign up and...

Palm Pixi review

 

Palm dials down the density and cranks up the cute with its lightweight, post-Pre smartphone. But can it find a place in between Android and the iPhone?

Tasty but underpowered, the Pixi is a lightweight phone you can enjoy between meals without ruining your appetite for smarter handsets

Palm Pixi smartphone review

 

Palm's newest webOS smartphone, the Palm Pixi, is a slimmed down version of the Palm Pre in both specs and design.

The Palm Pixi is a small, sprightly webOS-based smartphone with a lot of potential.

Palm Pixi review

 

Thankfully, most of the great features of webOS have not been compromised. After spending some time with the Palm Pixi, we found a lot to like about this sprightly smartphone - for the most part.

The Palm Pixi is a small, sprightly webOS-based smartphone with a lot of potential.

Will the Palm Pre's younger sibling, the Pixi, overshadow its elder? We review the Palm Pixi to find out.

The Palm Pixi may very well be the most feature-rich, enjoyable smartphone in the budget smartphone price range. It might not pack enough oomph to excite hardcore smartphone enthusiasts, but it will almost certainly satisfy beginners and moderately...

Palm Pixi review

 

The Palm Pixi arrives as a streamlined successor to the Palm Pre, lighter on features, weight and your pocket. But has it got the power to compete with the heavyweight Motorola Droid and Apple iPhone? Read our Palm Pixi review to find out.

Gorgeous design, satisfying keyboard, sharp, colourful touchscreen

Sluggish performance, low-res camera

A beautifully flawed smartphone for people who don't really want a smartphone

Sprint Palm Pixi review

 

We review the Palm Pixi, Sprint's second webOS-powered smartphone

Priced under the magic $100 mark ; Very responsive ; Good keyboard configuration makes typing on the tiny keys much easier

Small screen, small typeface in the Web browser ; Cheapest monthly plan option ($69.99 per month) could be too expensive for first-time smartphone shoppers

The Palm Pixi may very well be the most feature-rich, enjoyable smartphone in the sub-$100 price range. It might not pack enough oomph to excite hardcore smartphone enthusiasts, but it will almost certainly satisfy beginners and moderately savvy users....

Palm Pixi review

 

Palm's latest WebOS Smartphone is out in the US. We take a look at what UK users have to look forward to with Macworld's take on the Palm Pixi smartphone.

Great features in WebOS; cute, pocketable hardware design

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

With the Palm Pixi now on sale in the US, Macworld UK's US-based sister site PC World has taken a look at Palm's lighter smartphone, the Palm Pixi. It's smaller, and slightly cheaper than the Pre, but can it stand up to the iPhone?
