Palms were not knows as the toughest phones on the block. But that was the past. There is news of a Pixi surviving a 450 degrees oven for 45minutes, only on batteries and cookies…!!

The Consumerist writes story about one Mr. Jim, whose wife, while baking cookies, accidentally dropped her phone on the tray and into the oven for 45 minutes.

Your post about the iPhone that fell 1000 feet and lived prompted me to share this story.

My wife was cooking last month. She set the oven to 450 degrees. When that temperature was reached, she inserted a baking sheet with the food she had prepared. After 45 minutes, she opened the oven and found her Palm Pixi phone in the oven just inside the door. It had apparently fallen out of her pocket as she bent down to insert the food into the oven.

She immediately grabbed the phone and when it had cooled enough, she removed the battery, which was distorted by the heat. Figuring she had nothing to lose, she placed a spare battery into the phone. It immediately came to life and has not given her a problem since.

Sincerely yours,


Phew…!! That is one tough Pixi…!!
