Review: Palm Pixi

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  36  

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's  

Nov 12, 2009, 9:00 AM   by Eric M. Zeman

The Palm Pixi swoops into stores just in time for the holidays. Was Palm able to give the Pixi a magic touch, or does it need another dose of pixie dust to really take off?

Did you love the Centro, Palm's other teensie-weensie messaging phone? If so, you're exactly the type of person Palm and Sprint hope will decide to pick up the Pixi. Why? Because it's petite, powerful, and a pretty good looking phone. This dainty gadget is Palm's leap into the mid-market.

I've used this.. nice phone!

This is one of the smallest phones ive ever seen. Its smaller than the Centro, about the same size just thinner and lighter! The phone is very powerful for being in such a small form factor. Some men may be squeemish to get a small phone called the Pixi, but I'm a man and have no problem carrying this phone because it looks solid; doesnt look girly at all (maybe if a pink version comes out). I'd rate this phone a 9/10 just because its such a powerful device in such a light, small form factor... not an "upgrade" to the Pre, but definately an alternative - I like it a lot. 🙂
It's definately marketed towards women, but I loved my centro, and the keyboard on the pixi seems muuuuuch more comfortable. If i'm in a text argument, or having to compose a long email reply, it's easy for my hands to get cramped, never a problem wit...

Now see...

...THIS is the type of phone a guy like me needs: not overwhelmingly tech-y for someone who doesn't need all the goodies, but still powerful enough and SMALL enough to do what I need it to do.
