Palm Pixi

As of today, those waiting with bated breath to learn when they can finally get their hands on the Palm Pixi have their answer.

The Palm Pixi, little brother to the Pre and Palm’s second device running webOS, will be available to Sprint customers beginning November 15th. As a less expensive version of the Palm Pre, the company’s flagship smartphone, the Pixi has a reduced feature set and is purportedly being geared toward a younger generation of consumers.

The Pixi adopts a candy bar form factor instead of the Pre’s unique curved design. The latest webOS device will lack WiFi and sport only a 2-megapixel instead of the Pre’s 3.2-megapixel camera. Despite these downgrades, the Pixi will support EVDO Rev and have 8GB of internal memory, GPS, full email support, and a 3.55mm headphone jack.

While Wirefly has yet to announce a price for the Pixi, Palm’s latest handset stands likely to be priced at only a stone’s throw away from the more premium Pre. It will be interesting to see how many consumers opt for the Pixi over its fully-loaded sibling.
