    the pixi is $50 cheaper than the pre and they took away a lot more than $50 worth of features. small screen, lower volume speaker, no wifi, slower processer, cheaper camera.

    this phone should have been $50, maybe $75.

    the only benefit over the pre is the build quality.

    I'm wondering if this segmenting of products even works within the current 2 year contract with a monthly plan exceeding the cost of the device.

    I can understand the small screen and slower chipset as a part of the form factor, but can't accept the camera, lack of wifi, quiet speaker and fuzzy/dim screen.

    I really think it should have been about form factor alone and forget segmenting by crippling features. Let the best form factor win, or maybe even both will thrive. But the crippling is too transparent and for a meaningless discount.

    BTW, the Centro did not include crippling. It was just a smaller phone sold for less.

    Welcome to the new palm management...

    But I was laughing at this phone even before it launched. What a joke...

    They need to go ahead with the standard slider, and another phone that is slightly bigger than the pixi and has all the whistles.

    Unfortunately, when you go cheap, that is what people associate you with... when they are ready to move up, they go google, apple, or soon windows.
