Palm unveils Pixi phone

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:45 am

Palm Inc on Wednesday announced a lower-priced smartphone in the same family as its popular Palm Pre smartphone, although the move may be overshadowed by rival product launches by Motorola Inc and Apple Inc.

Palm said it will start sales of the Pixi, a candy bar-shaped multimedia handset with a full keyboard, ahead of the holiday shopping season. Like Palm’s popular Pre, Sprint Nextel Corp will be the exclusive provider in the United States.

The company said the price would be revealed later, but that the smaller and lighter Pixi would cost less than the Pre, which will be marketed as a premium product.
