Leak points to Verizon readying for Palm Pixi
Hints that Verizon is readying itself for Palm phones gained momentum today with a leak of training material. The carrier is now believed to be giving 20-minute training sessions both on Palm as a company and webOS specifically that started Tuesday and run until January 4th, just ahead of its CES keynote. No details are given to the Phone Arena tipster what device or devices will be available.
It's widely but unofficially expected that Verizon will receive a Pixi with Wi-Fi and may also get additional devices, although the existence of a more advanced Pixi reduces the likelihood that the Pre will reach the carrier, at least without significant modifications. Verizon has repeatedly signaled its desire to add Palm's webOS-based phones to its lineup.
