Hands on with the Palm Pixi

CNET takes a hands-on look at the new Palm Pixi smartphone.

On Wednesday, Palm introduced its second WebOS smartphone, the Palm Pixi. Destined for Sprint for the holiday season, the svelte Pixi is targeted to a bit of a younger audience than the Palm Pre and offers a fresh design and new features but also makes some sacrifices in those departments to presumably reduce the cost of the device.

We got a chance to check out the Pixi first hand this afternoon, and though it's not a final product, we were heartened by what we saw. If priced right--we're thinking $100 or less--we could see a lot of youngsters and smartphone newbies flocking to this device. Find out more about the Palm Pixi and our impressions of the smartphone in our hands-on slideshow below. Also, be sure to check back for our First Look video to see the Pixi in action.
