Say hello to the Palm Pixi

Palm Pixi

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.
