The original Palm Pre is getting a bit long in the tooth, but up until today it’s been capable webOS phone on Sprint. Sprint’s reluctance to offer a follow-up device (Palm Pre Plus, Palm Pre 2) has been well documented, but now the Palm Pixi is the only option for those looking to purchase a webOS phone on Sprint. Yes, the original WiFi-less Palm Pixi. It would be wishful thinking that perhaps Sprint has been hiding the Palm Pre 2 from us all, but we don’t get that feeling. Perhaps some of those mystery references found in webOS 2.0 source code will find their way to Sprint early next year. We’ll be at CES providing all the coverage of the yet-to-be announced HP Palm event.
