Palm has just announced their second webOS phone, the Palm Pixi. Based on the form factor, this smartphone looks to be the replacement for the Palm Centro.
The Pixi sports a candybar form factor (no slider) and has a QWERTY keyboard. This new smartpone also runs on the Sprint network. I like the look of the Pixi, although I am disappointed that it’s not GSM.
