Palm has had its ups and downs this year, the release of the Palm webOS UI along with the Palm Pre cellphone and Palm Pixi mobile phone were definitely high points with all three of Palm‘s products being rated highly. On the other hand, lower than expected sales along with diminishing market share over the years have combined to cause Palm‘s shares to dip and traders to advise selling their shares. This has caused much concern and worry amongst Palm fans and lovers. We review the Palm Pixi Plus smart phone in this post as it is one of the reasons why we believe Palm will make a strong recovery.
The Palm Pixi Plus cellphone is essentially the Palm Pixi mobile phone plus Wi-Fi and is available for Verizon and soon for AT&T. The carriers do not really count as an advantage or disadvantage but Wi-Fi is clearly an advantage as not only does the Palm Pixi Plus smart phone connect via Wi-Fi but is also capable of acting as a Wi-Fi router to connect to up to 5 separate devices.
That combined with the benefits of a regular Palm Pixi cellphone make for an impressive list of technical specifications including a 2.63″ TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 400 pixels, accelerometer sensor, proximity sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, 8 GB internal storage, 3G, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), microUSB, 2 MP camera with a 1600 x 1200 pixels resolution as well as LED flash, Bluetooth, GPS and quad band GSM.
The only feature that could have been better for the Palm Pixi Plus mobile phone is the touchscreen display which is a tad small at 2.63″. The QWERTY keyboard on the Palm Pixi Plus smart phone does its job well enough and combined with the extremely intuitive and user friendly webOS UI, the Palm Pixi Plus makes a device that is easy to use and also provides many great features.
