Palm Pixi announced, shown on video. Does it suck....?

PalmPixi
It’s all about the low-end devices lately. After HTC’s newly announced Touch 2 and Tattoo it’s time for Palm to unveil their entry level WebOS smartphone, the Pixi. What can I say… lets see, WebOS (great) it’s got a tiny 2.63″ 320×400 capacitive touch screen (geat resolution but too small), Qwerty keyboard (good) 8Gb of internal memory(great), Qualcomm MSM 7627 Chipset (what !? So the Pre has a Cortex8 cpu + OGL ES 2.0 gpu and this thing has an old as hell ARM11+OGL ES 1.0 GPU? way to go Palm!), 2Mpx fixed focus camera with led flash (bad) and finally I kept the best for the end…..NO WIFI! Oh well , at least it looks cute and is really light & thin…It will be exclusive to Sprint and should be available for in time for Christmas (around $99).
Check out the hands on action here.

    I personally can’t wait for the Palm Pixi to hit UK shores. After reviewing the Palm Pre, one thing that was apparent to me was the slightly cramped keyboard which made texting a little bit awkward.

    The Pixi has fixed this apparently, however the camera resolution has been dropped to 2 megapixels, which to be honest is a shambles.

    WebOS is amazing, the 1.3.5 update will be amazing I am sure, and if Google could go back knowing about WebOS they’d surely design something very similar.

    Thank you for the post.
