[ Background music ] >> Bonnie Cha: Hi I'm Bonnie Cha Senior editor at CNET.com and today we're bringing you a first look of the Palm Pixie. This is a second web OS device from Palm and it is the thinnest one to date. It's about 10% thinner than the iPhone 3GS and 20% thinner than any Blackberry out there so very, very nice and sleek. On front here you've got a capacity of multi-touch screen and below this area you've got a gesture area just like the Pre but it doesn't have that little knob right there. Got a full QWERTY keyboard, it's pretty easy to use I actually think I like it better than the Pre's. As usual you get the Palm web OS and some of the great features like the deck of cards. Synergy now includes integration with linked in contacts as well as Yahoo contacts, calendar and IM which is great. Other new features include a dedicated Facebook app which I know many of you will be happy about and there will be more apps coming to the catalogue including iLike which will show you some concerts in your area and like post them to your calendar so that's great. Really good system again just like the Pre as far as integration. Other features include Bluetooth and GPS, support for Sprint's EVDO Rev A network as well as a 2 megapixel camera, 3.5 mm headphone jack which we love and you will also be able to get different back covers designed by various artists and they will be debuting that at the New York fashion show coming up.

Pricing hasn't been announced but looks like a great device for a lot of different people so looking forward to checking it out when it is available. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the Palm Pixie.
