Aaron's Palm Pixi review

phonedog.com
17 May 2010
  • Summary: The Pixi is clearly marketed as the budget device in the webOS lineup, evident by the lack of Wi-Fi, a smaller screen, and a less powerful processor. That being said, it has distinct advantages over the Pre, such as size, lack of moving parts, a more tactile keyboard, and a lower price tag. Though I see a great deal of potential in the future of webOS, like anything else in the wireless industry, it will boil down to personal preference.

Palm Pixi (Sprint)

CNET
14 May 2010
  • Summary: While not as powerful as the Pre, the Palm Pixi offers first-time smartphone buyers a decent set of features in a sleek little package. However, to be really competitive, we think it needs to come down in price just a touch.
  • Pros: The Palm Pixi features a remarkably thin design and an improved QWERTY keyboard. An updated OS brings Yahoo integration as well as enhanced messaging features. It also offers Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support.
  • Cons: Lacks Wi-Fi. The smartphone can be sluggish and battery can drain quickly. The camera's picture quality is subpar and still lacks video recording and editing options.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Last year was a big year for Palm, with the Pre announced at CES in January, and the Pixi announced in the fall. We’ve finally got our thoughts on the Pixi, from the webOS operating system to the Touchstone charging technology and everything in between. Get the rundown after the break.
  • Pros: Lightweight and slim design., Great QWERTY keyboard., Fast EVDO network., Touchstone inductive charging technology.
  • Cons: webOS still considerably slow., Third-party app catalog still small.

  • 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. If you're upgrading from a Centro there's a lot to like, including the much more modern OS with multitasking, a good GPS, and support for Sprint's myriad services like Sprint TV and NFL Mobile. We're not in love with the keyboard, but we weren't a fan of the Centro's either.
  • Pros: Small and pocketable QWERTY smartphone, fresh OS.
  • Cons: Sluggish at times, keyboard is trying.

Palm Pixi Review

  • 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”. While this is really your choice to put up with the slow performance (again check the video to see if you think it’s “too” slow), I would personally not go for it.
