Underneath the hood of the Palm Pixi

Palm provided plenty of information regarding their upcoming Palm Pixi phone, but up until now we haven’t recieved word on the processor and chipset used in the Palm Pixi. PalmInfoCenter received word from Qualcomm that the Palm Pixi will utilize the MSM7627 chipset. While  not as powerful as the Palm Pre, the chipset powering the Palm Pixi is certainly no slouch.

Technical specs:

  • Two ARM cores integrated into a single chip – a dedicated CPU core and a dedicated modem processor – for an unparalleled level of integration:
    • 1. 600MHz applications processor with floating point unit and L2 cache
    • 2. 400MHz modem processor
  • Supports both CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A and UMTS HSDPA 7.2Mbps/HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and GSM
  • In addition to the two ARM cores, features 320MHz application DSP for multimedia supporting full 30 fps WVGA encode/decode, 200MHz hardware-accelerated 3D graphics core supporting OPEN GL 2.0, high-resolution camera, integrated GPS
  • 12mm x 12mm footprint
  • Optimized power consumption

In our hands on, the Palm Pixi had plenty of pep to it and we’re also thinking Palm has some room to work with optimizing webOS for both devices. No word yet on a release date for the Pixi, but it’ll be here in time for the holidays.
