Sprint Nextel just announced that the new Palm Pixi will go on sale for $99 on Nov. 15. The Pixi is a smaller, skinnier answer to Palm’s Pre. It’s basically a souped-up version of its Centro device, which was especially popular with women.
At $99, it should compete well with Sprint’s other smartphones — especially similar-looking BlackBerry devices — and could help the carrier with much-needed subscriber retention.
But it’s not going to stop the masses from buying iPhones, and probably won’t draw many new subscribers to Sprint.
