Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus to arrive at AT&T "in the coming months"
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!
