The Palm Pixi Plus is marketed as "First smartphone" or a "Starter Smartphone." I don't find that moniker especially fair, as the Pixi Plus is as capable as the large majority of other smartphones out there. It compares well against the BlackBerry lineup and even the Android...

After a long time deciding which smartphone to go with, I finally went the webOS route. I went with the Palm Pixi Plus for a couple of reasons. 1) I work for HP and I thought I would at least give webOS a try since I have a professional stake in its success. 2) I bought a pixi plus unlocked on...

The keyboard had a satisfying click, it was perfectly portable, the design was gorgeous and customizable, and the screen put up with a lot of abuse. It was a lot of what Palm did right and what...

I have not have the Palm Pixi Plus for long, but I already love it. The keyboard is unique, and although it looks tiny, it is very easy to type, text and e-mail with speed and accuracy. The lack of an auto-correct feature is a bit of a bummer, but you learn to live with it. The battery life is a...
