AT&T came up with a press-release to officially announce the upcoming availability of the webOS-powered Palm Pre Plus
and Palm Pixi Plus
. Unfortunately, users won't be able to enjoy the many advantages of Palm's webOS soon, since both smartphones will become available sometime "in the coming months", so the information hinting at a June or July release
might turn out true (but we hope it won't). Expect the Palm Pre Plus to cost $149.99
with a two-year service agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate. The Palm Pixi Plus will be available for $49.99
on the same conditions.
Both handsets look identical to the models already found in Verizon's catalog, except for these being GSM phones with 3G support on the 850/1900 MHz bands. Also, users will be able to use voice and data services simultaneously.
Both devices will be showcased at the CTIA event
, so expect our coverage!Palm Pre Plus Specifications
