    I wonder if the Sprint Pixi actually has the circuitry for wifi but they just dont enable it with the correct drivers. It seems counter intuitive that they would make a pcb that didnt have wifi support just for the Pixi. A mobile wifi module is dirt cheap. Better to put it in there with the hopes of the next customer (Verizon) using it. Then all they have to do as change the label on the front, not re-design the pcb. Its good business sense.

    So, if there is a wifi circuit in there perhaps some clever hacker can enable it, turning the pixi into a pixi-plus running on Sprint!

    Anyone... anyone...

    There doesnt appear to be a teardown of the Pixi. Odd.

    i've been inside my wife's (dropped in soda for 2-3 minutes) and didn't see a good home for a module. By the way, the phone still works like a champ.

    If the Sprint Pixi did have WiFi, they would be in violation of FCC regulations for passing it through without divulging the extra radio. Unless they completely killed the chip, which would make it pretty useless for us end-users.
