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: Both the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus are fun, modern and enjoyable smartphones. Combined with Verizon's strong network and EV-DO Rev. A fast data, these phones are definitely worth a good, long look.
Pros: Palm's webOS is a pleasure to use, Verizon's strong network is a plus.
Cons: Both could be a tad more responsive, the Pre Plus outshines the Pixi Plus.

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.

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
