Good: Communication (email,sms,IM),size.
Bad: Battery,lack of apps.
Comment: After having Palm Pre and it's "big bro" Pre+ decided to get Pixi +. The decision was made after some issues with Pre's keyboard and speaker pissed me off.
Welcomed O2's decision to put this handy device on PAYGO for Â£100, which is superb value4money.
It has very good built in apps out of box (for professional use, not for youngsters) and with little search and "modding" you can enhance it to very high level.
Recomended for business user,entertainment "hungry" customers should stay away...
Good: Very impressive features, compact design, competitive price point
Bad: Battery life a little disappointing
Comment: The Palm Pixi Plus is an excellent smartphone with very advanced capabilities for the price, Â£100 on O2 pay as you go. The operating system and interface are beautifully designed with many little touches which makes the user smile.
The capacitive touch screen is very precise and responsive becoming particularly useful when browsing the internet. The keyboard, despite its small form, has great functionality and makes typing easy and quick. The gesture zone is integrated perfectly with phone features such as flicking between apps, opening and closing pages and scrolling on the internet.
The 3.5mm headphone jack and micro USB port are again very useful with little impact on the phone's size and aesthetics.
Inside the phone the WIFI and 3G capabilities are great for use on the go with integrated IM, the internal memory of 8G is ample space for general photography and multimedia use.
So much to say about such a little phone!
Good: It Looks Like A Really Good Phone. :)
Comment: I Was Just Wondering, Whats The Memory Like?
And Does It Take A Memory Card? If So, Which One?
Good: The operating system is pleasant to use and works well. Keyboard although small, is easy to use.
Bad: Sluggish, can be very irritating sometimes to do something very simple
Comment: A stopgap for me before moving onto something I can get my teeth into - currently thinking about the HTC HD7. The Palm Pixi Plus is small but manageable, fits into any pocket, bag etc. Some people may be put off by the keyboard, but honestly, its very clicky and easy to use The operating system is good, a bit different from the norm. Its not using a great processor and therefore performance can be sluggish but have seen worse. You can sync up to gmail, so you will get your contacts and calendar etc if you sync this way. The application store is growing with most of the big apps there to download. With Palm now being part of HP - hopefully we will see big things coming from HP Palm.
