Pixi to hit Sprint on November 15 for $100 (after rebates)

Palm is trying to reinvent itself into something resembling a popular smartphone maker with its new devices running webOS. The Palm Pre garnered quite a bit of praise when it hit the market a few months ago, however, sales of the device proved somewhat disappointing.

Palm and Sprint have now announced that the WebOS-based Pixi will be coming to Sprint exclusively for $99.99 on November 15. That price will require a new 2-year agreement along with $50 instant rebate and a $100 mail-in rebate. The device will hit Sprint stores and will be available online starting on November 15.

“We are excited to offer the new Palm Pixi to our customers in time for the holiday season, and it’s a great addition to Sprint’s industry-leading device portfolio,” said Kevin Packingham, senior vice president – Product Development, Sprint. “Simply put, this phone is fun and easy to use; with its multi-touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard, it’s a great device for messaging and social networking at a price everyone can enjoy, and delivers so many of the great features people love about Palm Pre™ in a fantastic new form factor, making it a huge hit for consumers.”

The Pixi runs the same webOS with the same features as the Pre. The Pixi will also include a new Facebook application allowing users to comment on posts from friends and make new posts. The Pixi will also be compatible with the Touchstone charger that is already available for $79.99. The Touchstone charger back will be available separately for $19.99.

Sprint requires the Pixi to be purchased with an unlimited data plan.

The Pixi features a 2.63-inch screen with 18-bit color and a resolution of 320 x 400 and will operate on the Sprint EVDO Rev A network. Other features include Bluetooth, 8GB of storage, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an exposed QWERTY keyboard.
