Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein on the Pre and the Pixi [Source dailyfinance]
The Daily Finance has an interview with Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein. Rubinstein, a New York native, acknowledges that just because Palm is showing encouraging signs of a comeback, this won’t be a cakewalk. “Making new products is hard We’re up against a lot of tough competition.

Palm’s Pre device was met with critical applause this year, and its forthcoming Pixi phone represents another evolutionary leap beyond Palm’s once-advanced Treo technology. Pixi, a slimmed-down Pre with a fixed keyboard, is aimed at teens; it should be in stores for the holidays at a highly competitive pricepoint: under $100, DailyFinance has learned, although the company remains mum on this issue.
