PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In a move reminiscent of the Pre launch, Palm has unveiled its second webOS mobile phone today, ahead of Apple's music/iPod event. The Palm Pixi is a candybar incarnation of the Pre, but is clearly positioned below its big brother; smaller screen, and more worryingly, no wifi.

Personally, I need WiFi. I prefer to use my network rather than rely on towers that might get overloaded

Well, that must come from someone unhappy she's be using a phone on a poor network. I've been using the Pre on Sprint for a while now, and load is *never* a problem.

At home with wifi available, I don't see any benefit to using wifi. There is no performance benefit, and I don't have to go through the pain of switching.

On the road, I don't have wifi, and honestly, I have yet to miss it. 90% of the time, when I don't have 3G access, I don't have wifi anyways.

Please, don't let your experience with AT&T cloud your judgment. Sprint is not AT&T and overloaded towers are not a problem.

BTW, my Pre blows away my G1 speed-wise. Surfing the internet with my G1 is unbearably slow (wifi or not, must be HW and/or SW). With my Pre, on Sprint, the www is finally usable on the go.
