Summary: I bought a new Pixi Plus the first day they were available (1/25/10) as I have been anticipating a Web OS Palm to come out for Verizon. I previously had a Centro that was very hard for me to part with as I had become so accustomed to features like the calendar, task list, alarm, texting, etc. Finally, I stepped up and made the change. So far, I'm glad I did.
As I pointed out in the "cons," the fact that the phone has NO removable memory was closer than I can describe to being a deal-breaker. Not that using a USB cord is a pain to transfer media, but once you don't have that luxury- you notice! (8GB memory is included internally & is plenty for my needs, but may not be for others). I have not experienced any lagging as described by some Sprint Pixi users, but I am already impatient in waiting for the Flash Player compatibility issue to be resolved (which will reportedly be soon) even though I have only been a Pixi Plus owner for three days. Some people have complained about the keyboard size but it is absolutely perfect for my petite hands (and similar to the Centro's).
Otherwise, the phone really is a GEM for the Palm OS faithful. Sure, it is a big change but it is well worth exploring.
My boyfriend has Sprint, but aslo had a Centro while I did (2+ years!) and we could not picture having other phones. Because of the success I've had with my Pixi Plus, he is venturing to replace his Centro tomorrow with a Pixi as well. THAT says something.
