Palm Pixi (Sprint)

  • Conclusion: The Palm Pixi, like the Palm Centro and BlackBerry Pearl before it, is a perfect entry-level smartphone for heavy texters who hadn't considered a smartphone before.
  • Pros: Fun interface. Cute design. Usable keyboard. Many more features than texting phones have.
  • Cons: Struggles with multitasking and video playback. Thin app catalog. Only for people with sharp eyes and small fingers.

  • Conclusion: The Palm Pixi is an affordable, fun and intuitive smartphone. We still like webOS quite a lot, though the Pixi's hardware doesn't show it off as well as the $50 more expensive Palm Pre.
  • Pros: Small and pocketable QWERTY smartphone, fresh OS.
  • Cons: Sluggish at times, keyboard is trying.

  • Summary: On the surface, the Pixi is a very attractive phone. It has a great, intuitive, user interface. However, to overcome the performance issues, users have to use the Pixi as a very basic smartphone: try to do as little as possible with it, and it might run just “OK”.

LAPTOP Magazine
12 November 2009
  • Summary: In some ways we wish the Palm Pre were more like the Pixi. The latter slimmer and lighter, and the keyboard is always at the ready (no need to slide). However, at times the Pixi's slower processor has trouble keeping up with the multitasking-friendly webOS.
