palm-pixiFrom the beginning let’s say it sounds strange. Pixi name given for the new Palm is not the brightest one, it is a phone not a robot. Let’s see if it can win our confidence with his technical features.

On the first look the smartphone seem nice and easy to use, it comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.63-inches TFT capacitive touchscreen(320 x 400 pixels) with 256k colors. The phone is made by plastic, weights almost 100grams and is quite thin having just 0.43-inches thick.

On the top of the device we find the power button and the 3.5mm jack, while on the right side the microUSB port and volume rocker buttons.

The 2 megapixel camera is on the back of the phone, but is nothing impressive(comes with LED flash and supports video recording).

Pixi comes with a Qualcomm MSM7627 processor at 600Mhz and a 256 Mb RAM memory and runs his native Palm WEB Operating System(1.3.1). Internal memory has 8Gb, but microSD card is not supported. A good thing is you can choose up to 300 apps from the App Catalog and every week Palm is updating with new ones.

Connectivity lacks Wi-Fi feature and features just Bluetooth 2.1, EDGE, GPRS, 3G, microUSB port.

We can say Palm Pixi is not a phone that you will want to use it these days, when iPhone, Htc, Nokia or others are available and exceed this model on almost all features. That’s maybe why Pixi can be found in stores at prices near 100$ or even 30$(after some discounts.
