Long forgotten Sprint Palm Pixi is priced at $29.99 no-contract for one day only

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...

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...

@palmguy - I think you meant the Treo.... But that was a long time ago.

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