Palm Pixi Smartphone : Palm introduced the Palm Pixi phone for faster, more intuitive and personal communication in a compact and customizable design. With the instinctively useable Palm webOS platform, strikingly thin design, a visible full keyboard and fashionable personalization options, Palm Pixi cell phone lets you express yourself in amazingly useful ways. It's scheduled to be available exclusively from Sprint mobile in time for the holidays. "With Palm webOS, we're creating a new, more intuitive smartphone experience defined by unmatched simplicity and usefulness," said Jon Rubinstein, Palm chairman and chief executive officer.|
In addition to linking your information from Google, Facebook and Exchange ActiveSync, Palm Pixi adds Yahoo! and LinkedIn integration to Palm Synergy and assembles it all in a single view. You can get your Yahoo! contacts, calendar and IM, and access to your LinkedIn contacts, including job titles. Synergy on Palm Pixi makes messaging easier by showing you all your conversations with the same person in one chat-style thread, so you can start a conversation on AIM Instant Messenger, Google Talk or Yahoo! Messenger and continue it by text message later.
New Palm Smartphone
Complementing the phone's already rich Facebook integration with the contacts, phone, calendar and photo applications, a new Facebook application will be available with Palm Pixi Smartphone so you can see and comment on all the latest news from your friends, as well as easily update your status. The cell phone's full QWERTY keyboard puts it all at your fingertips, and the multi-touch screen lets you move back and forth between open applications using natural gestures. The unique removable back cover is rubberized, scratch-resistant, slip-resistant and durable.
Palm Pixi covers from the Artist series
For those who want to express themselves with some extra style, Palm is introducing the Palm Pixi Artist Series. Designed by some of today's most unique and compelling artists, these numbered, limited-edition back covers let you change designs to suit your mood. Palm will be showcasing the fashionable new Palm Pixi Smartphone with the Artist Series covers this week at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York (September 10-17).
Palm Pixi Software applications
You can also tailor Palm Pixi to your interests with downloadable applications from the Palm Beta App Catalog, including the latest entertainment and social networking applications such as Local Concerts by iLike, and Yelp. You can use Palm media sync to customize your phone with music, photos and videos from iTunes, or use the on-device Amazon MP3 store to purchase individual songs or full albums over-the-air.
