The Palm Pixi is a multimedia smartphone developed by the smartphone maker Palm.

The device was officially announced on September 8, 2009, and was released on November 15, 2009.[1][2]



The Pixi's existence had been speculated during much of 2009, as a lower-cost complement to the Pre; the phone was referred to as the "Pixie" and "Eos". On September 8, 2009, Palm announced the Pixi via its blog.[3]

It features a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash, proximity sensor, accelerometer, Bluetooth 2.1 (with A2DP stereo), MicroUSB connector, 3.5 mm headphone jack and 8 gigabytes of flash memory (roughly 7 gigabytes available to the user). Like the Palm Pre, the Pixi features Palm Synergy synchronization features, Universal search, Palm Services over-the-air backup, restore, remote erase and updates; and compatibility with the Palm Touchstone charging dock. The Pixi includes built-in WiFi support in its updated version, known as the Pixi Plus, which is available only under Verizon carrier.
