The Palm Pixi was first announced back on September 9th with no pricing and availability stated as "in time for the holidays". Today, Sprint and Palm announced that the Palm Pixi will be coming to Sprint on 15 November for $99.99 with a two-year contract, $50 instant rebate, and $100 mail-in rebate. The Palm Pixi is the second Palm WebOS-based phone, following the Palm Pre.

The major difference between the Palm Pix and Palm Pre is the form factor. The Palm Pixi is a forward facing QWERTY more in line with the traditional Palm Treo lineup and looks most like the Palm Treo Pro. The Pre has a forward facing QWERTY too, but it is hidden by the slide up display. Like the Palm Pre, the Touchstone charging solution (induction) is an add-on accessory priced at $79.99.

The Pixi also has a couple other specs different than the Palm Pre, including a 2 megapixel camera instead of a 3.2 megapixel model, lack of WiFi, use of Qualcomm MSM7627 processor instead of 600MHz Cortex A8, and slightly smaller 2.63 inch display at 320x400 pixel resolution compared to 3.1 inch 320x480 pixel resolution display.
