Is This the Palm Pixi 2 With a Front-Facing Camera?

You may not have to wait until Palm finishes production on its smartphone promotional video to catch a glimpse at the Pixi 2, as Sprint may have mistakenly shown us the Pixi 2 where it meant to use the first Pixi.

While Sprint’s page offering a free on-contract Pixi describes the original smartphone as we know it, the image Sprint uses clearly shows a phone with a front-facing video camera. The 360-degree and zoomable depictions of the phone show the correct model, but the main picture is definitely something that’s not quite a Pixi.

Is this the codename Broadway we’ve been hearing about? Either someone goofed while creating this mock-up, or someone goofed and uploaded the wrong image. Though it was just recently noticed by a keen-eyed visitor, the graphic has been up on Sprint’s site since December 22.

What’s odd, if this really is the Pixi 2, is the lack of a front-facing camera on the Pre 2. You’d think Palm would want its users talking to each other on its own devices, after all. Evidence of a Photoshop error, or consequence of the Pre 2’s earlier release?
