Pixie Dust: Palm Unveils Palm Pixi, Hopefully No Creepy Ads (Update)

Palm Pre is getting some company. It’s releasing the Palm Pixi soon. What the hell is the Palm Pixi? Good question. Here’s a couple of specs:

  • Dimensions: 10.6×55x111mm
  • Weight: 100 grams
  • 2.63″, 320×400 capacitive touch screen
  • 4GB of internal memory
  • Tentative price of $349 before rebates. Our sources are indicating that the target price point is $99 after all is said and done.
  • 2MP camera, fixed focus, with flash
  • Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP and EDR, USB 2.0 via micro USB
  • 1150mAh battery, removable
  • SMS, MMS, built-in IM client
  • A-GPS
  • WAV, MP3, AAC, AAC+ ringtones, MPEG4, H.264, H.263 video playback.
  • Basically, this phone is mean for Sprint customers who can’t get the Palm Pre. No word on whether this Palm can smoothly run tasks simultaneously like the Palm Pre.

    The keyboard on the Pixi is said to be smaller than the Palm Pre and that makes me wonder if you’re targeting teens or people with small hands (word to the Burger King guys with tiny hands)

    No release date yet confirmed. Expect before the holidays.
