The Power of One Infographic

The Palm Pixi will be launched next month, it has been confirmed.

A low-end alternative to the Pre – reviewed here - Pixi was unveiled on 9 September. But it has taken US carrier Sprint until today to confirm that the phone will be available in North America from 15 November.

Customers willing to sign a two-year service agreement with Sprint will be charged $200 for the Pixi after a $50 "instant" rebate. You'll get another $100 (£61/€66) back if you send in a coupon.

Sprint will offer various Pixi price plans, including one that provides unlimited mobile calls, nationwide texting, email and web browsing for $70 per month.

Pixi is compatible with the Pre's Touchstone wireless charging system and allows you to express your mood with a series of $20 interchangeable back covers.

Palm has already promised that Pixi will be sold in Europe, but the manufacturer hasn’t yet announced a specific UK launch date or carrier handshake. ®
