Palm prepping a "Mini-Pre"?

Palm is preparing a low cost follow-up to its upcoming Palm Pre, offering the same Linux-based WebOS operating system, says an eWEEK story. Yet, even as Palm prepares the "Pixie," the Pre is facing some manufacturing problems that could limit availability, says the story.

At the well-received unveiling of the Palm Pre smartphone in January, Palm stated that it planned to release several phones based on WebOS, but since then has released no further details. The 3G-enabled Palm Pre may well be be the first Linux-based smartphone aside from Android phones from HTC and Samsung to offer an "iPhone"-like smartphone experience. Note, however, that several phones based on the LiMo (Linux Mobile) specification should ship this year that are expected to offer similar high-end features.
