Ellen DeGeneres gives Pixi phones to screaming audience

You’ve gotta love daytime talk shows, eh? Today’s taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show brought back the 12 Days of Giveaways, a segment where DeGeneres gives away stuff to the audience leading up to the Christmas holiday. She kicked off the series with an electronics bang, giving everybody in the audience a Barnes & Noble Nook eReader, a Powermat wireless charger, a MiFi portable wireless router, a Nokia Booklet netbook with two months of AT&T service, and our favorite, a Palm Pixi. Approximate retail value: $1450. Of course, you couldn’t really hear her describe the gadgets over her screaming audience. Yeah, they were a little bit on the excited side of life. Video is above, earplugs are encouraged.

Ellen’s not the only one giving away Palm phones. Palm is too - via their monthly Facebook giveaway. This month Palm is asking for you to comment on who on your holiday shopping list deserves a Palm phone, and it’s okay to enter yourself as the lucky gift recipient. Palm, however, is giving you an option: Pre or Pixi?
