Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The music player gets the basics right, with an intuitive interface and decent sound through the supplied headphones, though there's no equaliser to adjust the tone. There's 8GB of memory on board (7GB for storage), which is certainly a decent showing, but unusually for a smart phone (at least ones that aren't made by Apple), there's no option to expand it with a memory card. The battery tends to get a bit of a kicking and I never quite managed to get a full day of, admittedly, heavy use out of it.

Palm Pixi Plus

Palm's webOS remains a pleasure to operate, but is a little sluggish on this model

Verdict

The Pixi Plus succeeds very well as a less expensive version of the Palm Pre, albeit with a smaller screen and slower processor. Palm’s webOS is a joy to use and media playback for both video and music is pretty decent, though no-one will be buying it for the 2Mp camera. If you can get used to the lag of the underpowered processor, it's a very nice little smart phone indeed. ®
