The Palm Pixi Mobile Phone
  

Instantly say whatever you want with an exposed keyboard right at your fingertips. Intuitively move back and forth between open applications using the multi-touch screen and natural gestures. Access your friends' information that's been pulled in and linked together for you. And choose from back cover designs and accessories that let you express yourself.1 Personally. The new Palm Pixi phone. You said it best.

The Palm Advantage
Pixi runs on the Palm webOS platform so it does things no other phone can do. Take the Palm Synergy feature, which brings together related information and presents it in one simple view. Or the App Catalog, which gives you a choice of titles to download, many of which are integrated with other apps on the phone. And the ability to keep multiple applications open at once, so you can do more than one thing without losing your place.

Combined messaging
When you think about communicating, you think about the person. Not whether it happens to be a text message or an IM. It's the same with Palm Pixi. Start a conversation on AIM Instant Messenger, Google Talk, or Yahoo! Messenger and continue it by text message when you're out at lunch or out for the night.3 With Palm Pixi, your conversations with one person are combined in a single chat-style view.

Real websites
Visit real websites, not just the mobile versions. Palm Pixi gives you the experience you expect, and lets you scroll and zoom using natural, intuitive gestures. Not sure what site you're looking for? Type "taqueria," and universal search looks through contacts and apps, then offers to search Google, Google Maps, Wikipedia, or Twitter.4 One more tap opens up Google Maps, and gets you one step closer to whatever you're craving.

Linked contacts
Each person's contact information is pulled in from places like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft Office Outlook, and combined under one entry. So instead of wondering where you kept someone's information, just think about sending that invite to happy hour. And if they happen to be online using AIM Instant Messenger, Google Talk, or Yahoo! Messenger, you'll see that, too.

Built-in location
Find things to do and people around you, right from where you're standing.3 Like a nearby place for dinner after a late client meeting. Or the closest bar where you can meet up with friends. Even look up an address for a contact or one from a calendar event, and map the location simply by tapping it. With Palm Pixi it takes two steps, not ten.

Multiple activities
Palm Pixi keeps up with the things you're doing, even when you're doing them at the same time. Say you're typing a message when a call comes in. Answer it, and go right back to the message. Then visit a website while you play some music. You can still return to that original message. Pixi keeps multiple activities open and lets you flip back and forth between them.2

Photos, Music, and Videos
Take pictures with the built-in 2 megapixel camera and LED flash, then share them by uploading to Photobucket or Facebook—or by sending from Email or Messaging.3 Download songs from the Amazon MP3 store and play them complete with their own album art. You can also easily transfer your DRM-free iTunes music, videos, and photos right to your Palm Pixi.

Layered calendars
You live one life, so why not go to one place for your calendars? Palm Pixi pulls in your online calendars from places like Facebook, Google, and Office Outlook, and layers them into one view of your whole day. Show one calendar or show them all. And easily add public calendars, such as ones for sports teams, events, or TV shows.

Apps
Browse the App Catalog from your phone and download apps right over the air.3 Choose from a variety of titles designed for the Palm webOS, many of which work together with other apps on the phone. Find apps like OpenTable, Yelp, or WHERE, just to name a few. And new ones are being added all the time.

Personal and work email
Get your personal email from accounts like Gmail, Windows Live Hotmail, and Yahoo! Mail. And stay in touch with work by checking email from Microsoft Exchange, POP, or IMAP accounts.8 The exposed keyboard makes typing responses, even longer ones, fast and easy.

Palm Services
You won't lose it—even if you lose it. Palm Services automatically backs up your phone so you have a copy of your important data. You can also remotely erase your data if your phone is lost or stolen. And you get software updates that make it easy to stay up to date with the latest enhancements. All right over the air, right to your phone.
