An ad by Sprint reveals the Palm Pixi sports Wi-Fi
The second webOS handset, the Palm Pixi is due in the US on 15 November, but certainly the advertising campaign has already started. It will be one of Sprint´s leading devices to hit the shelves around the holidays. The really interesting thing, however, is the dedicated page shows the phone actually supports Wi-Fi. Quite odd really, since it´s the first time such an information has appeared. We guess this is a mistake that will be fixed soon, although we cannot help thinking what a nice surprise it would be if the manufacturer was to add a Wi-Fi module at the eleventh hour. Miracles do happen, especially around Christmas, don´t they?

It says WiFi "capable"? Could that be some kind of play on words?

Sprint screws up ads all the time. I wouldn't hold my breath that it will be sporting Wi-Fi.

from Engadget: "Sprint has a time-honored tradition of screwing up its ads. Remember the Palm OS-powered (yes, Palm OS, not webOS) Motorola Q2? How about the Pre's mythical tethering capability? Here's a new one to add to the history books: the "WiFi capable" Pixi, yours for just $99.99 after mail-in rebate. Count us in."
