Palm Pixi Plus quietly makes an exit from Verizon's web site

Palm Pixi Plus quietly makes an exit from Verizon's web site
If you've visited Verizon's web site of late, you may not have known, but the Palm Pixi Plus has been removed from their listing of available handsets to purchase. Although it might not come off as being surprising for some people, it now places the load on the Palm Pre Plus as being the sole webOS offering on Big Red's lineup.

Obviously, not all devices will live on through the ages, but the departure of the Palm Pixi Plus might be another blow to HP/Palm since we're finding fewer carriers holding onto any webOS smartphones. Even more, it's rather alarming since we have yet to see any US carrier take hold of the Palm Pre 2 – which can be seen as a big blow in getting the platform into the hands of consumers.

But then again, you can still find the Palm Pixi Plus on HP's Wireless Central site and even through the variety of online retailers out there.

Palm's mistake was to purposefully orphan the bizillion loyal legacy users of the Palm OS PIM who wanted desparately to migrate to something more advanced like Web OS but wanted to continue with the awesome genius of Palm hotsync. Users didn;t want to go to the cloud with years and years of contacts, calendar and memo entries, and the Google cloud killed that capability as well as the security of local syncing.(Did you read about the alliance between Google and the NSA spy agency?) If Palm had made local hot syncing available to legacy users, they would have acquired an instant customer base of huge proportions. It was like RIM having orphaned their millions of OS 5 and legacy users in the transition to OS6. RIM may not have the wow-pizzaz factor of iOS or Android but RIM knows that they have a large and loyal customer base who will buy their improved phones enough to make it profitable.
