Palm Pixi Survives 45 Minutes Inside 450 Degree Oven

It’s not just iPhones, Palm Pixis are perfectly capable of surviving harrowing exploits as well, writes reader Jim. In the interest of fair and balanced coverage, we must give the Pixi’s story its due.

He writes:

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,
