AT&T mistakenly says that Palm Pre Plus is available now

AT&T mistakenly says that Palm Pre Plus is available now
The thing about wishful thinking is, well, it is still just a wish no matter how hard you try to make it real. On AT&T's web page is a series of 8 short videos dedicated to the coming arrival of the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus. Most of the videos show you how things work using the webOS operating system and one video shows the features of the Pre Plus. At the end of the video it says, "Now Available on AT&T" which is a problem because the handset has yet to be launched by AT&T. Yes, setting up the web page is a signal that the device is coming soon, but there is a wide gulf between "coming soon" and "now available".  If you're an AT&T customer who has been waiting to put webOS in your palm (no pun intended), we would guess that you haven't too much longer to wait.

Please, be glad that we can't criticize you. I can only imagine how pitiful it would be. Find something useful to do, instead of being jealous that you don't own this website. That goes for any other idiot that makes stupid posts. So far, this thread is batting %100! (Excluding myself of course) Your grammar does not do too much for your case crappy punk.

This is astonishing! According to thenegative rating of my comment, there are alot of dumb people on this site. I am glad we are able to get amusement out of other people like this. Phone Arena should add Hilarious Comments to their tag of Cell Phone Reviews, News, Specs and Info!

First off Phone Arena, when AT&T says that the Palm Pre Plus is Now Available on AT&T, they just mean that it's COMING to AT&T and that it's going to be available soon. It's your fault for misinterpreting...

I can see if maybe it said coming to at&t. But not saying available now is not even close to saying that its coming to. But when your a company that big mistakes are bound to happen.

I could see what Jyakotu is saying. "Now available on AT&T", because it hasn't been before and other carriers have had it. I wouldn't say it, but I could see what he's saying.

BlackberryUser explained it perfectly. I just couldn't put it in the right words. I guess I should've said that what AT&T is trying to say is that it was available on Sprint and Verizon, but not it's available on their network as well.

WebOS is a better OS than Stock Android. I know cus I've had a G1 for over a year, and I own a Pre. The only way Android comes close to a seamless smooth running OS is with Motoblur or Sense UI. I've owned both, I have my opinion. I'm not knocking it before I try it like you idiots. Have a nice day.

G1 doesnt amount to squat that phone sux, put your pre up tp Droid Series or even mytouch. -1 for your stupid comment

"COMING SOON.....PALM phones...." "NOW AVAILABLE.....videos on how to use the PALM PHONES" It is not like the phone is going to sell more than 100k during its run with AT&T - AT&T, instead of coming out with more crap, you should have signed on to get an INCREDIBLE Phone, one that we all DESIRE!!"
