Palm Pixi coming November 15, cost $100 Sprint and Palm have announced today that the Palm Pixi smartphone will be available on November 15th with a price tag of $100 after $100 mail-in-rebate and two year contract.
The phone, the second using the WebOS operating system, will be available through the carrier, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-Mart and from Palm.

The Pixi is seen as a "little sister" to the Palm Pre smartphone which has been a big hit for both Palm and Sprint.

"Simply put, this phone is fun and easy to use; with its multitouch 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," added Kevin Packingham, Sprint's senior vice president of product development.

The Pixi includes a 2.63-inch multitouch screen, 2MP camera, QWERTY keypad, GPS and "Synergy," contacts integration.

I suppose this would be the Palm Centro replacement? It's nice that this full-feature phone is cheap, but I don't see the point when the plan for it will be just as expensive as other bigger and more expensive smartphones...
