Unlike the Palm Pre, which was introduced by Telefónica in Spain, Palm announced yesterday evening that its Palms Pixi Plus webOS smartphone will be available in Spain with Vodafone from May 10. As Palm's thinnest phone to date, the Pixi Plus fits easily in your hand or pocket and offers a host of powerful features. It's great for work and also for social communicators who want an affordable phone with a touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard instantly accessible for messaging and web content. A significant advantage of Palm webOS applications is that they can be integrated into the core webOS experience, including linked contacts, layered calendars, notifications and GPS.
The Palm Pixi Plus showcases the defining features of Palm webOS, including the ability to run multiple applications simultaneously and easily move between them; the power of Palm Synergy, which brings customers' information from the many places it resides into a single, more comprehensive view; unobtrusive notifications; and universal search. Palm webOS also has a unique model of over-the-air software updates that delivers new features and performance improvements directly to a user's phone. Past updates have included support for video recording, allowing webOS customers to use their phones in fun, new ways.
With the Palm Pixi Touchstone Back Covers and the Palm Pixi Artist Series Back Covers, which are compatible with the Touchstone Charging Dock, you can easily switch covers to suit your mood and style (all sold separately from Palm Spanish website).
Palm launched the Palm Pixi Plus late last month in Germany, where it is available from O2 and Vodafone and France, where it is available from SFR.
