It really makes us wonder how great devices can have a hard time trying to establish themselves on the market sometimes. This is exactly what happened to Palm's stable of webOS smartphones. It is widely known now that the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus, which are already offered by Verizon Wireless, will (hopefully) launch soon with AT&T. While the handsets did not become truly popular, probably thanks to Verizon's "great for mom" ads - who knows, AT&T's Luke Wilson might come up with some better ideas of how to make them more appealing to the general public.
Anyways, the AT&T versions of the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus themselves do not differ from the Verizon versions, except for their network support. So, we pretty much know what to expect - webOS (good), streamlined designs (good), not very rich App Catalog (bad). Prices will be $149.99 for the Palm Pre Plus and $49.99 for the Pixi Plus.

Haven't you seen all the problems with the nexus one??? You should get something else like he drips eris or something. Verizon might not announce (or later, launch) the nexus one if it's still plagued with problems that google and htc apparently overlooked when designing or building this. nd I think the HTC desire would be better.

I feel bad for T-Mobile. They show up with a. Simple HSDPA+ netbook or whatever. The HD2 launches today, and I wonder how many people are going to regret buying it when windows phone 7 or whatever comes out or when they see what andriod and win-mo devices are better. But for now, the HD2 has it's day in glory.
I wonder how many people in my city are driving or walking to t-mobile stores today to get this phone, regardless of the fact that there's a foot of snow on the ground in places and cold as hell. BIG SNOWSTORM.

This is just sad. 5 new things for AT&T, 3 for Sprint, and Verizon ties with a prepaid for new things coming out. It's starting to feel like years ago when Verizon had half as many handsets as it's competitors. I just read an article talking about why there was no announcement about either the Nexus1 or the Incredible at CITA, and most of the people leaving comments were fed up with how Verizon is so sercretive about what's coming out. If it were really a case of not doing it because their competitors would try to beat them to the punch on their upcoming offerings, then why aren't AT&T and Sprint also being so hush hush. Then to top it all off, when whatever they're keeping under wraps finally comes out, it usually falls flat. Maybe if they got some input from their customers on what they want, Verizon would be able to sell more units and keep them from defecting to their competition. Verizon, this isn't the Manhattan Project, it's cell phones! I'm only ticked because I'm about a month away from my NE2 and I don't want to go down the same road of renewing and then 31 days later they come out with something that is better suited to me. Let's not start to have phone releases end up like the Android 2.1 update. Maybe I'll hold off on getting that smartphone. (Steps off the soap box to go have a beer)
