Excerpt: The Palm Pixi Plus is Palm’s 2nd-generation device along with the Palm Pre Plus . The Pixi Plus is Palm’s first WebOS phone that has a candy bar form factor with no sliding mechanism. I like design of it, reminds me of my old Nokia e61i, but more sexier.
Conclusion: If you're looking to move up from a texting feature phone, the Palm Pixi Plus is an excellent choice. It's fun and easy to use, yet it's powerful with a full featured Webkit browser that supports pinch zooming (Flash is coming but isn't here yet), Synergy for syncing contact info from multiple...
Pros: Great OS, excellent web browser, extremely affordable smartphone.

26 April 2010
Excerpt: To be launched end of April in Germany and France , the GSM/UMTS Palm Pixi Plus is the latest addition to Palm's portfolio of webOS smartphones. Running webOS 1.4, the Palm Pixi Plus features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz.
Conclusion: I really like this phone. As much as I like this phone, it won’t be my next phone. I felt it was a little underpowered, and I don’t really care for the form factor (except for the incredibly small size). I am a sucker for a large screen and some horsepower.
Pros: Very slim, Physical keyboard, webOS, 3G Mobile Hotspot
Cons: Seems under-powered, Smaller screen, Small keyboard
Excerpt: What the Honda Civic is to the Accord, the Pixi Plus is to the Pre Plus . While not entirely hobbled, the Pixi flutters in the shadow of the Pre with a smaller screen, a slower processor, and a lower-resolution camera, but balances the handicaps with a lightweight, easy-to-use form factor that finds...
Pros: Low $80 price tag, Superb QWERTY keyboard, One of the most pocket-friendly smartphones to date, Slick, multi-tasking-friendly WebOS interface, Speedy 3G connectivity on Verizon, Optional Touchstone charger and designer backs
Cons: WebOS feels somewhat unresponsive, really chugs at times, Screen can feel cramped, App Catalog still lags behind competitors (but by less than before), Unimpressive camera, Slightly less intuitive than iPhone
Summary: Not much has changed from the Pixi to the Pixi Plus, but the addition of Wi-Fi and the Palm mobile hotspot app make this a solid sub-$100 smart phone. In this price range we prefer the HTC Droid Eris because of its larger 3.2-inch display and much larger selection of apps, although the Pixi Plus has...
