Let the smartphone wars begin again.

Palm has unveiled the sequel to its Pre, the Pixi. The teeny iPod Nano-like device is a smaller version of the Pre smartphone, aimed at younger customers.

Sprint will start selling the phone by year's end. And in a bid to boost sales, Sprint today drops its price on the Pre to $149, from $199, plus a two-year contract. Palm's combination phone/music and Web device is seen as a viable competitor to Apple's iPhone.

Unlike the Pre, the Pixi doesn't have Wi-Fi, which means it can't be used to access the Internet outside of Sprint's network. It also has a smaller screen, keyboard and camera — two-megapixel to the Pre's three-megapixel.
