Smartphones from Alcatel are common, but today we have an affordable tablet that comes from Alcatel, so let’s check it out.
With CES running at full force, consumer companies are busy unveiling some of the amazing products. The bar is set high and every one is competing to out class their rivals. Dell, in latest presentation at CES 2010 unveiled its 5-inch prototype tablet. Other several new products also include the Palm Pre Plus & Pixi Plus that were unveiled at CES recently.
Its official, Palm’s second WebOS smartphone the Pixi will be arriving exclusively to Sprint on November the 15th. The new Pixi is slated to hit Sprint stores, Best Buy, RadioShack and selected Walmart locations next month for $99.99. However, its not that simple, $99.99 is after a $50 instant rebate and a $100 “mail-in rebate” that you’ll probably need to wait abit for. For those in the UK, the Pixi’s arrival date is still yet to be confirmed, considering the Pre has just arrived us not long, it may be awhile!
To recap, the Palm Pixi is a non-slider 3G handset, with a 2.63-inch, 320×400 resolution touchscreen, Qualcomm’s MSM7627 chipset, Microsoft Exchange push email, built-in GPS, a 2-megapixel camera with flash, accelerometer, media player, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 8GB memory, microUSB connector and a 3.5mm stereo jack.
Palm has officially made the Pixi their new Web OS phone. The Pixi as most will imagine would be a step higher and more advanced than the Pre but in fact, it isn’t and some may even regard it as the simplified version of the Palm Pre more suited for those not really into multimedia functions.
If you had the Pre, take out its wifi, remove 80 pixels of vertical resolution, downgrade its camera to two megapixels, add support for Yahoo! and LinkedIn syncing, a preinstalled Facebook application, and what you get is the new Pixi.
