And of course, with Android at least you can get apps for it.

I bought this unlocked phone to see me through the rest of my current cell phone contract after my basic non-smart phone gave up on life. The main things that attracted me to this phone was qwerty keyboard, the price tag and the wifi capabilities. I don't currently have a data plan and didn't want to get one, but live in a city where there's free wifi readily available just about everywhere.

I've had this phone for just over a week and here are my main issues:

Wifi/3G:
The first thing the phone requires you do to is to set up an Palm profile. The phone will automatically connect to 3G and uses data to do this. The phone also frequently checks for updates and if you set up your email through the phone it'll frequently check in to give you up to date emails. I bet these are neat features if you have an unlimited data plan, but if you have anything less than unlimited you should be aware of the frequent updates and backups that will drain your data and cause you to go over. This is apparently a common problem with AT&T. You can turn off 3G and set the phone to wifi which is what I've done.

Alarm clock:
You can't sent alarms to go off on custom days. You can only choose ring once, daily, weekdays or weekends. In the end you have find an alarm app that will allow you to set custom days if you have any needs for custom alarms like I do.
The alarm sometimes won't go off but will only vibrate, even when you have it set to make a sound. If you hit snooze the alarm does not sound when it goes off again but will vibrate only.
When the alarm is set the alarm notification shows up at the bottom right of your screen, rather than the top left, like every other phone I've ever had, so you have to know where to look.

I have nothing bad to say about this item. While it is listed as an unlocked device, the unit cannot be used without a data plan UNLESS the palm account activation is bypassed. Hp/palm offers an activation bypass tool under their developer web pages that does this easily, after running some programs you must download. This process took me about an hour, and I was hesitant at first because the Hp/palm site stated that inactivated devices would lose SMS and Phone functionality (what good is the device without these?!). However, I believe that statement only applies to CDMA phone running an older version of webOS; I lost neither. The only loss for an inactivated device is access to the webapps, but if you're looking for a ton of apps, get an android phone or just develop them yourself.

I got this item for $81, and it arrived the NEXT DAY with my amazon prime account. For that price, where else are you going to get an unlocked smartphone with a 600 mhz processor, 8 gb internal storage, 256 mb ram, and capacitive touch screen? Granted, the camera is lacking and the screen is on the small side, but for the price, who cares. Battery life is average; it went from 92 to 88 percent overnight, and 88 to 76 after 4 hours of moderate use (texting, brief browsing over wifi).

Good product.

UPDATE:

Just Bought another after giving one to my sister and my SE Xperia X10 crashed (Not a phone I would recommend...) For those wishing to use this phone without a data plan (Like Me), here is the parent site for activation bypass:

This isn't a top end cell phone nor was it when it originally came out.

pros: It has a fairly responsive touchscreen and a qwerty keyboard. It's pretty thin. Cheapest in it's category. WiFi

cons: Only supports up to WebOS 1.4.5 because of the old hardware. DOES NOT come with data cable. Does not have its own manual, instead it's packaged with the non "plus" model's manual, which happens to be CDMA, a major difference.

Comments: Te phone it worth it, the old WebOS thing is a non issue since most new software is probably too resource hungry, in any case it's still better than a non-smartphone, and if you actually NEED a smartphone you should probably go for something with android or windows, for example. The packaging was crunched up when received, meaning that it served it's purpose in protecting the sweet sweet innards of the package. USB cable was absent, camera is so-so but better than nothing.

tip: DO NOT format (erase all data) this device or else you'll have to jump some loops to make it work again. You'll either need a data plan to create an Palm/HP account, or use some Palm/HP software to bypass this. You DO NOT need a data plan for these phones, you just need to bypass the requirement. Just don't ask your carrier ;)

I rarely write reviews since I'm not a native speaker, but I think I need to write something for this good product.

Pros:
Multi-touch screen with 320x400 resolution;
Full QWERT keyboard;
Camera with flash (though only 200M pixels);
WebOS 1.4.5;
Unlocked phone;
Very cheap price.

Cons:
Keyboard button maybe too small for some people, but when considering the small size of the phone itself, it's not a problem.

So here comes the important part of my review. I will make it clear if you're confused with the reviews regarding of the activation of the phone.
===============================================
THIS PHONE IS UNLOCKED!
However, to use the phone, you need to go through the activation process. There're two ways to do this. DO NOT try to activate the phone before you finish reading my review.

Method 1: Using activation-by-pass tool provided by HP.
I don't think I can post a web link here, but you can search "Developing on an Unactivated Device" on google to get the official description of the tool from HP. But when you follow the instruction of the web page, please notice that the method to go into recovery mode for palm pixi is a little bit different with other webos devices. Here's the correct way to get into recovery mode for pixi:

(1). Turn off the phone;
(2). Take out the battery and re-insert it;
(3). Plug the charger into an AC outlet, but DO NOT plug the other side into the phone yet!
(4). Press down the Volume up button, without releasing the volume up button, plug in the USB cable into the phone;
(5). DO NOT release the volume up button until you see a USB logo on the screen.
(6). Unplug the USB cable from the AC charger, and plug it into your PC.
