It's actually thinner than the iPhone and any BlackBerry.

Coming in at just 10.85 mm, the Pixi is thinner than the Pre by 6.1 mm and even the iPhone 3Gs by 1.45 mm..

Re: Palm Pixie

Really sharp looking, you can immediately identify it as a plam. I think this should have been released first instead of the pre, it more closly identifies itself with Palms past phone model history. An important link IMO from who they are to where they are heading...
Is this one made by HTC? Looks like it!!

Palm Introduces the Palm Pixi

Today Palm introduced the Palm Pixi to its young line of WebOS devices. The Pixi is a compact device with 2.63 inch multi screen with a full QWERTY keyboard. The new device appears to take full advantage of Palm new WebOS and Palm's Beta App Catalog. It does appear that Sprint will initially be the exclusive carrier for this device. Availablity for this device will be in timefor the holidays. Limited Edition Artist Series will also be made available during this time (Photos of examples below). Pricing had not been disclosed but rumors are circulating that this will be about $100 with a 2 year agreement and after applicable rebates are applied. Specs for the Pixi are:
  • High-speed connectivity (EVDO Rev. A)
  • 2.63-inch multi-touch screen with a vibrant 18-bit color 320x400 resolution TFT display
  • Gesture area, which enables simple, intuitive gestures for navigation
  • Exposed QWERTY keyboard for fast messaging
  • Robust messaging support (IM, SMS and MMS capabilities), including Google Talk, AIM and Yahoo! IM
  • High-performance, desktop-class web browser
  • Integrated GPS
  • Multimedia options, including pictures, video playback and music, and featuring a 2-megapixel fixed-focus camera with LED flash, and a standard 3.5mm headset jack
  • Email, including Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) (for access to corporate Microsoft Exchange servers), as well as personal email support (Google push, Yahoo! push, POP3, IMAP)(9)
  • Bluetooth(R) 2.1 + EDR with A2DP stereo Bluetooth support
  • 8GB of internal user storage (~7GB user available)(10)
  • USB mass storage mode
  • MicroUSB connector with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
  • The first handset to launch with Qualcomm's high-performance MSM7627(TM) chipset
  • Proximity sensor, which automatically disables the touch screen and turns off the display whenever you put the phone up to your ear
  • Light sensor, which dims the display if the ambient light is dark, such as at night or in a movie theater, to reduce power usage
  • Accelerometer, which automatically orients web pages and photos to your perspective
  • Ringer switch, which easily silences the device with one touch
  • Removable, rechargeable 1150 mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 55mm (W) x 111mm (L) x 10.85mm (D) [2.17 in. (W) x 4.37 in. (L) x 0.43 in. (D)]

Re: Palm Introduces the Palm Pixi

Looks like an updated Centro, a nice, well featured, cheap entry level user for a non-pro. AKA the Iphone market share
