Long forgotten Sprint Palm Pixi is priced at $29.99 no-contract for one day only
Shopping around to find a smartphone for someone during the holidays is a job on its own. However, once you’ve managed to pick the right one finally, you’re then left to hassle over how you’ll be able to get the phone activated on the correct phone number without messing around with their plan or contract extension. And of course, it’s nearly impossible to get a smartphone activated for a friend versus a family member.

Well, if they happen to be on Sprint, you’ll be interested to know that the aging Palm Pixi is on sale for a single day. Yes, it’s one of those long forgotten webOS powered devices that went out like the dodo, but considering that it’s priced at $29.99 no-contract, that’s one tempting price for any smartphone on the market. On top of that, you’re basically getting a no-contract device that’s priced as if it were on a contract – even better, there’s no fumbling around messing around with anyone’s account.

Long forgotten Sprint Palm Pixi is priced at $29.99 no-contract for one day only
With the shipping cost, the total damage to you is only a mere $34.98, which again is within reason for a gift this holiday season. Although it’s not the shiniest thing out there, its price is as good as it gets – so you can’t beat it! Just like Cinderella, its magical pricing is only valid until tonight before the clock strikes midnight.

Love it when they advertise everything as unlocked... there is nothing unlocked about Sprint CDMA.

I wonder how long it will be before we start seeing similar deals for BBs?

I bought a Palm Pixi Plus for Verizon back in June so I could get on the smartphone unlimited data plan before they stopped offering it.... I bought the Pixi for $29.99 on Amazon.

Palm and Blackberry were once the mighty, now they are both dead/ dying. So sad, just goes to show that no brand stays popular forever in the cell phone industry. Android & ios, you too will have your day.

Disagree. Palm and BlackBerry had a small "fan base" compared to apple and android. Blackberry failed to evolve, and palm was virtually unknown and had horrible marketing.

The Palm Pilot never had a phone in it... I owned one. There was some wireless data functionality, but it was awfully slow and tedious to use. Thanks for the compliment on my youthfulness though...

Is this supposed to be a discussion or a history lesson? Those phones from yesteryear are practically ancient dinosaurs. They're practically obsolete now.
