Verizon-bound Palm Pixi spotted, sports Wi-FiAaron Baker - Director, Content and Partnerships
Based on an FCC filing, the Palm Pixi is en-route to Verizon, and better yet, it will be packing Wi-Fi. With the update to webOS 1.3.2, the Pixi seems to be a nice mid-range handset for the occasional data user (though it still lags in several areas). I see the device as a stepping stone between typical phones and high-end smartphones, which is exactly what Verizon needs. Pick up those first-time smartphone buyers, and boost data revenue in the process.
The jury is out regarding a release date, but it's nice to see some hard evidence. I have to agree with the speculation that the Pre and the Pixi might be released on the same day (think DROID and Droid Eris here). Anyone want to wager a guess? Sound off in the comments!
