Overall the Palm Pixi Plus ranks in as an 'Average' smartphone. While the design and performance were decent and the user interface was great, the features were a bit lacking. This is not a smartphone to be scoffed at, however, and is easily a...

Some folks have said that Palm would be in a very different place today if the Pre and Pixi were more powerful phones to keep up with the iPhone and Android juggernauts. That might well be true, and it makes it even more unfortunate just how badly...

The Pixi Plus succeeds very well as a less expensive version of the Palm Pre, albeit with a smaller screen and slower processor. Palm’s webOS is a joy to use and media playback for both video and music is pretty decent, though no-one will be...

If you love the iPhone because it is easy to use and intuitive, the Pixi Plus will suit, with the added bonus of a smaller chassis and a smaller price tag. For this reason it’s hard to beat. But, if you want to choose from loads of apps and need a...

If you want a smartphone that is as simple and intuitive to use as the iPhone, in a smaller frame and at a lower price, the Pixi Plus is hard to beat...

Many people were rather miffed when Palm decided not to release the original Pixi in the UK. The baby brother to the Pre, it had a smaller screen and a less cute design than its larger sibling, but it was cheaper and still used the much...

If this were released even 6 months ago when Verizon's version was released, this could've been one interesting handset for AT&T customers as their Android lineup was non-existent. Since then, we've been introduced to a myriad of decent...

Despite a few very minor issues, the Palm Pre and Pixi have done an excellent job of putting multi-tasking into the hands of the user. Partner an extemely friendly interface with good responsiveness and you've got a prime example of how to manage...

The Palm Pixi Plus has a superb operating system, is very intuitive to use and yet is quirky at the same time. The screen is a bit too small for good multimedia use, and the keyboard not the best to type on. Stylish? Yes. Ergonomic? Not really. Palm...

The Palm Pixi Plus is a touch-screen smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard. AT&T subscribers looking for something affordable but not stripped of features will likely find the Pixi Plus to be appealing. Even more appealing is that it is free when...

If you're looking to move up from a texting feature phone, the Palm Pixi Plus is an excellent choice. It's fun and easy to use, yet it's powerful with a full featured Webkit browser that supports pinch zooming (Flash is coming but isn't...

While the Palm Pixi Plus is new to AT&T it has been around for a while. As the first WebOS phone I have had the opportunity to review, I was excited to do so, it’s just not very exciting. The problem is we are seeing new phones come out almost...

The Palm Pixi Plus is as pleasant as ever. But even when free with a two-year contract, it's tough to choose over the superior Palm Pre—or the iPhone 3GS, for that...

The “Plus” in the Palm Pixi Plus (AT&T) really means one thing: the addition of Wi-Fi connectivity. Other than that, the phone is identical in specs and design to its predecessor, the Palm Pixi (). While the keyboard isn’t perfect and...

The Palm Pixi Plus – the Pre's dinky sidekick – makes its UK debut and is the latest smartphone to offer a scaled down, affordable alternative to a premium handset. The new and improved Pixi follows the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and HTC...

A pretty little phone with some good features for businesses and surprisingly competent web browsing, but poor battery life and a high price sours its otherwise demure appearance....

The Palm Pixi Plus isn’t exactly new, but its launch on AT&T this coming Sunday will mark the debut of the GSM version in the US market. Priced at a featurephone-rivalling $49.99 (with a new agreement, naturally), the obvious question is whether...

Palm’s sprightly Pixi Plus is a good, inexpensive addition to AT&T's assortment of smartphones, but some users might have trouble with the tiny, cramped keyboard....

The Pixi Plus is a very nifty phone that boasts a full Qwerty keypad, a touchscreen and it runs on Palm's innovative webOS operating system. There are bits of it that need improving, particularly battery life and the app store, but overall we...
